Number one rule – isn’t it?


I have always thought it is part of everyone’s basic understanding that before applying for something – especially in the world of employment – you do some research. Things like, who are you applying to, what do they do, what are the implications/opportunities of working for/with such an organisation etc

Maybe I am wrong! Over the weekend someone sent me an email asking if they could use the office where I work for re-direction of their mail! This is a first in the entire time working in the employment field.

Why would anyone want to send their mail to a complete stranger?

I had to re-read that email several times. Why would anyone think it’s ok to ask this – not a great first impression!

What do you think? Ever asked something without thinking?
