Dear Friends,

We often make wrong decisions during interviews while accepting a job or rather declining the job. The most frequently done mistake is that we often accept an offer considering that incase we dont' find a much better opportunity than this, we can always turn back, But when we do this, are we following the moral values and ethics of the reputed professional that is human resources. It's time for companies to consider or rather we to imbibe few ethics of accepting a job offer and thereby being with the same.

Just think about the impression you make during your job selection decisions. Don't accept an offer too early thinking you can change your mind if a better opportunity arises. It doesn't leave the company with a good impression of either you or the previous organisation and nor your university. If you're offered a job that you don't really want, don't take it out of fear that it will be your only offer. A negative impression caused by unethical conduct can affect the beginning of a new relationship with an organization both now and in the future.

What's your say friends ??

Hi Pooja,

People should be driven by an intense and creative passion to change the world. Our talents, skills and energies should always be diverted towards achieving that. When it comes to ethics, every move has to be ethical. Lastly, business or job loss is acceptable, but compromising on ethics is never valuable or suggestive enough.

This query has been raised several times by professionals often to initiate the importance of practising professional ethics but the efforts have really been drained out. Opportunites have been increasing considerably for the graduates and working professionals which have left them with immense choices in their hands to make the final call. People attend more than three interviews these days (as per a survey) when they are seeking for a job and hence the decision is taken only after the successive conclusion of all the interview calls since that gives the candidate enough base to decides and finalise with a position. We have been talking on terms of values, ethics, guidelines, adhocs, regulations and standards but they seem to be misplaced when the practical situation is prevalent.

Candidates have loved to create an impression during the interview sessions, but tats just to get the offer which they rather collate from more than one organization. So out here, unless the job market is competitive, opportunities are few and available only for the right candidate, there shall always be instances of people not practising ethics since they already have an entire bakery of products from to select rather than only one beautiful cake which they have liked and can be eaten nicely.
