Recruitment hell

Today, I was let go by a job for the second time in less than a month, for the same reason - they couldn’t be bothered to give me any training or feedback. They even said I worked hard and had drive, but the wrong “skill set.” This could have been brought to my attention at the interview. FML

I've heard this happening a lot lately. They agree to take on a person needing training, not giving them the training then being disappointed that your don't have the training. Hiring is very expensive and time-consuming. Giving you the training to keep you at your job would have been much cheaper than hiring you, letting you waste everyone's time, firing you and looking for your replacement. It's stupid, inefficient and cruel.

Agreed. Been through this in IT field soo many times. It’s better if they don’t have the ability or time to train, to just promote from within. Simply as they would know a lot of stuff ahead of time and just informed of the difference. Too many expect people to be off the ground and running. Even college graduates are inept at real world experience at first. Not this guys fault. Just shitty employers.
