Disclaimer: Name of the girl has been changed to keep her identity safe. This incident happened after she gave an interview at a leading cellular company (name kept confidential and will be referred as ABC throughout the document). Sentences in quotations are directly quoted, and therefore the grammatical mistakes are maintained.
“wel its seems k u don’t want to talk neways wel asma I saw u in ABC’s office n seriously u r so beautiful n have gud personality…Me to crush on u yar aur 1st time I feel like crush wel I don’t know whts ur reaction aftr knowing abt dis and I noe dis is wrong way to talk to u but aur way bhi nahi tha:)”
This is what this girl received on her cellphone once she gave a job interview at a leading cellular company hoping for a good future with good people. As a result, she was subjected to this trauma when a guy from the same company started calling and texting her as soon as on the same day. Now, this puts a huge question mark on the personal information all the jobseekers drop (while trusting on the name of the company obviously) and this is what later on happens with it?
We all have talked and read about gender (particularly female) harassment at local companies but this is something which requires immediate attention and perhaps immediate action too; not only girls but male jobseekers are vulnerable to such acts of humiliation as well.
“Ab to rply krdo?how rude u r?lokin vise to nhi lagta k u rude person?”
“yar I don’t understand y u don’t wana talk?R u committed kia?Aik to rply dai do kanjus :-P”
Once a student graduates, he/she starts dropping CVs to each and every organization thinking that it will fall in the right hands, and this is what happens with them. I am sure this is not the first case; there would be numerous such stories that happen with our youth just because some personnel sitting in these glamorous companies are not doing their job, but rather abusing and misusing their powers.
At this point of time, just when the Human Resource Departments have started to make an impact in the Telecom Industry and in some organizations they are doing a pretty good job too, this incident is potential enough to raise an alarm. Where are the HR practices?
We simply cannot allow a handful of people to play with the image of our otherwise prestigious Telecom Industry.
Note: The interviewee later communicated those messages to ZUMBEEL.
