Now that I have enriched your lives with good advice, I turn to you for same.
How do you best answer the question ‘Have you applied to this company before’ when a previous attempt was unsuccessful?
Since the application process is basically one of elimination, your submission risks instant dismissal by answering ‘yes’. After all, an employer reasons, if they didn't hire you before, why would they hire you now?
Answer ‘no’ and thanks to computerized data bases, it’s only a matter of a few keystrokes to see if you’re lying. This of course also guarantees your efforts will be consigned to the cyber circular file.
Your opinion please!
