Default Old thread request


"dogsnus" wrote in message
...
A few months ago there was a very good discussion that
took place on how to explain to a prospective employer
in an interview about having gotten fired from a previous
job.
I can't remember the name of the thread but was hoping
someone else here might so I can look it up in google?
I wish I could be more specific about it but that's
about all I can remember at the moment.
Dennis? Harry? Anyone else with a better memory than mine?



http://groups.google.ca/groups?q=tel...fired%20frugal

I found it in 6 seconds, without knowing anything about the thread, using 4
keywords.

And we'd be even more impressed without the gratuitous last sentence.

He's just gloating. So much for my debut as a game show contestant. Guess
I should have tried to name it in three...

Mike: I can name that thread using five keywords.

Bill 2: I can name it in four.

Mike: Bill, name that thread!

cue challenge music Bill smiles, though somewhat nervously.

camera zooms in on podium, housing computer/monitor/keyboard Without
hesitation, Bill quickly punches up Google and enters four keywords. Six
seconds later... "Is it 'Fired from previous job...disclose on
interview???'"

Ding! Ding! Ding! cue victory music

The point is some people don't know how to use a search engine.

Aw, heck. Four words is easy. :-) I can do it in two words:
fired puke

http://groups.google.ca/groups?q=fired+puke

There are other combinations of two words that will bring it up as
well.

Well, maybe. And your rubbing it in helps them precisely how?

Then maybe you should HELP them instead of trying to make them look bad...

You're way too mature for Usenet.

Thats probably why they have trouble job-hunting.

I can do it in one word: divalge

http://groups.google.ca/groups?q=divalge

But neither really count because you can pick words (and typos) specific to
that thread.

My point was finding the thread initially wasn't too hard.
