The manager of a 7,300-subscribers JobBank newsletter in northeast Ohio, has offered an apology for her strident replies to applicant emails, which went viral over the past week or so.
Here’s part of Kelly Blazek’s written apology, according to Cleveland.com:
Hundreds of people contact me every month looking for help, and as the bottom fell out of the job market, their outreach and requests demanded more of my time. I became shortsighted and impatient, and that was wrong.
My Job Bank listings were supposed to be about hope, and I failed that. In my harsh reply notes, I lost my perspective about how to help, and I also lost sight of kindness, which is why I started the Job Bank listings in the first place.
