I think it’s great when you find real friends or soul-mates at work. There’s nothing wrong when two people meet at work, and later on develop some kind of relationship. Emotions cannot be so easily controlled, and when we speak of having positive emotions – why should we control them?

I think that the most important thing in the career growth is constant learning of new things and improvement of one’s abilities. Once you have a good paid job, it’s very easy to relax and enjoy doing things you are good at. But you will never grow professionally if you stop at this point. Besides, learning something new is always interesting, it makes you go out of your comfortable area, and thus prepares for new challenging things.

I would definitely never do anything immoral or illegal to get even the best job in the world. Moreover, I’m sure that if your dream job challenges you to do something immoral, then there’s something wrong with your perception of a dream job!

Trust is a key element when it comes to a conversation between two people, not to speak about the job interview. The interviewers should analyze everything critically and rationally and be suspicious only if there are valid reasons for this. Not trusting job candidates by default can lead to losing great potential employees and experienced professionals.

Marianna, I can’t agree with you on the point that we should not pay attention to people having negative approach to things, and I doubt they can beat those with the positive approach in the interviews. I think every employer wants to make sure that his/her employees’ views match the company culture, therefore sometimes soft skills and personality matter more than hard skills to an employer. I also think that every employer has an associative image of an employee who will fit in the organization, and an image of a ‘not employee’, and I think it’s the right way of hiring – it can help to avoid hiring regrets on the part of an employer and add to job satisfaction on the part of an employee.

I thinks hiring decisions based on the first impressions or on gut feeling are the sign of unprofessionalism. If this principle works in your organization and you don’t put an end to it, you may end up with a lot of pretty but completely useless employees. If you can’t be sure that you won’t get blindsided by a pretty smile then use some other way of assessing the candidate – luckily today there’s an abundance of software that lets you do so.

Dealing with rumors requires very thorough understanding and analyzing of every suspicious situation, because not every chit-chat at the kitchen is actually gossiping. But if you want to tackle this problem, you should by all means start with yourself, because even an innocent talk not about business matter but about some personal stuff may grow into the big wave of gossiping.
