Read one email from a blur king today. This guy sent in application for a supervisory position. The hiring manager liked his resume and wanted to interview him. So we called him to make interview arrangement and sent an email to him to confirm the time and venue of interview yesterday. Guess what, he sends email and ask what position is he being interviewed for. Stupid man! If we let the hiring manager knows, maybe he will call off the interview arrangement.

Well it prettyobvious that he isn't going to get the job, it is pretty bad when you can't even remember where it is you are applying for.

Guess what, he did get the job. It's a very senior position, drawing 5-figures salary per month. He had a lot of experience in this field of expertise, but he's really blur with paperwork and email or whatever admin duties. The hiring manager liked him very much!

Then he is obviously not a 'blur king' Scheng.He may be poor at clerical work but seems to have expertise on a higher level.Otherwise how could the hiring manager have liked him?

Hi Kayla, many technical managers are as blur as him. Once there was a project manager who forwarded a very confidential email out to all his staff. As HR, we sent him an email to inform him that his new employee was going to assume duty on a certain date. His designation and salary were in the email (my colleague also very blur, usually this kind of confidential information was not put in email). This project manager forwarded to his staff and caused a lot of unhappiness. Since the new hirer was paid about $1000 more than existing staff holding the same positions, you can imagine how messy the situation is.
