Back in the day, human resources was humane. It’s hard to believe that there used to be real-life, actual people who read résumés, responded to the submissions and spoke with job seekers.

They would manage the applicants’ expectations on how long the process would take, how many people they’ll meet with and the best way to present themselves. There was no such thing as “ghosting” in those days. If a person was not offered the job, someone at the company would offer feedback as to why.
