Lunedi Lunacy

I'm sure we've all read about the new HR procedures - I always hated that term HR, I mean what the hell are Human Resources???? Sounds so impersonal doesn't it? What am I saying?  Of course it's impersonal but then it probably always was; its just that when it was called Personnel it sounded a bit less clinical.  At least Personnel was close enough to personal that it sounded user friendly; resources sounds like something you dig out of the ground, process and then throw out when you've done with it.   Well okay maybe it is closer to the truth but damn it who wants the truth???

However I digress.  Here's a little video about a process that many companies seem to go through these days - after they've checked your FaceBook profile, Twitter account and X-Tube videos!

Gives a new meaning to Head Hunter doesn't it?

Oh, that's so bad! But at the same time, thank goodness those machines don't really exist!
