A frustrated business owner has publicly shamed hundreds of pandemic recession jobseekers.
Ryan Irving, from Henley-on-Thames, slammed these people after 97 percent of applicants failed to follow his advert’s basic instructions.
The 36-year-old businessman claims the job advert specified not to submit a CV but rather asked candidates to answer a handful of simple questions for a role at his web services company Ri Web.
Meanwhile, he did not specify which job advert his post referred to, his company, Mail Online Report.
However, Ri Web has recently advertised a one-year internship, paying £12,000-a-year, asking applicants to answer questions rather than requesting a CV.
Irving took to Linkedin revealing that of a whopping 183 people who applied, all but six were automatically declined because they weren’t sufficiently tuned in to respond properly to the request.
While some supported his message to pay attention to detail and not just fire out CVs blindly, others branded him ‘sanctimonious’ and said he was failing to see it from the point of view of job seekers.
“Jobseekers, please read job ads carefully and to the end.”
“We recently ran a job ad which attracted 183 applications which, unfortunately, is symptomatic of the current job climate.”
