So the job market must be booming, right?

Managing Real Estate Broker with Full Circle Property Management

So I am trying to hire a new assistant property manager, and have a lot of resumes, but can you imagine from 10 scheduled and confirmed appointments, 2 actually appeared?

And the 2 that showed had neither the skills nor desire to do the job needed.

So I am assuming that the job market is booming, pay is up, and jobs plentiful. Or maybe less people actually want to work? Or maybe today's employees do not want to start as an assistant, learn some skills, and work their way up the ladder to a better job but prefer to start at the top?

I guess I am just confused as to why people make appointments and simply don't show up, and don't call. I get it with tenants and a little with home buyers, but even potential employees?

Hmmm...must be the signs of a good economy and bad manners....

Dennis- oh dear, I fear that it is a sign of bad manners coupled with poor guidance.  You and I wouldn't think of doing anything like not showing up.
