An HR manager recently got a thank-you note on her iPhone that read:
- “Thx 4 the Iview!”
The manager had liked the candidate in the interview, but after getting this text message, she put his application in the reject pile.
- Why do you think she rejected the candidate?
- Was that fair?
- Should “textspeak” be considered acceptable workplace communication?
Answer the questions and explain what you would do as a manager in this situation.
