Mindblown: a blog about philosophy.

  • Typical vs. maximal performance

    In this situation, I would choose to hire Jamie as I think that consistency is better than being a slacker. I would rather hire someone that gives you pretty good results every time they show up for work. I think it’s better to have someone you know will get things done. They may not go […]

  • Some Important things I learned

    This has definitely been a class I have enjoyed. A lot of the information was new to me and interesting to see from the hiring side vs the applicant side. The one thing I enjoyed was the different tests we took about personality. I haven’t had to take tests for jobs yet so I didn’t […]

  • Self Reflection

    What Am I good at……. I feel that I am an excellent communicator. I am such a people person and love to talk to people which makes it easy for me to network. I am also a good planner. I love to create a schedule and make things happen. I very much plan ahead. What […]

  •  IPIP Results & Reactions

    The first one is extraversion, which was my highest scoring of all 5. I am a very outgoing social person so I wasn’t surprised. I am very much a people person. For agreeableness I was average.

  • Job Descriptions

    The last job I had before my job now was pretty different than what the job description was. It was an internship, but they had me doing a full-time position that introduced me to things within sales and catering for hospitality. When I read the description, I was pretty excited, as I felt that it […]

  • Experiences with Discrimination 

    I think the first thing is to fully understand the situation and what happened. There can be many things on social media that may not be entirely true. I think it’s important to have all the facts and a good understanding before deciding whether to support it or not. There is always going to be […]

  • The Case for Recruitment & Selection

    Recruitment and selection are very important aspects of a company, but so are many other things like marketing. Companies at times may forget to put a budget aside for recruitment and selection. The question of why organizations decide to allocate more resources toward marketing or product design rather than using those same resources to do […]

  •  Job Application Experience 

    The job application experience overall has gone pretty well for me. The most recent job application I have done was for my current position as assistant operational support. The application process what pretty straightforward and was done through a link. It asked for normal application materials such as a resume, cover letter, recommendations, how you […]
