Job Seeker Email: Potential Employer is asking for RIDICULOUS requirements during the recruiting process
I have just received a notice for a job and this is what they want me to bring to the interview:
1. 3 recent accomplishments written up
2. A copy of my 3 most recent performance evaluations.
3. a current copy of the organization's annual goals/objectives and work programs.
4. any other appropriate samples of work.
5. a list of 6 professional references.
Now, I have been a contractor working for a small real estate firm moving an old database over and doing support work. I don't have any performance evaluations. Also, I don't think I should provide the company's goals/objectives, as that is information that I feel should remain confidential to my client. I have been an IT Director back in 1998 and 1996 but that is pretty far back. Any advice? Should I just call the County (it's for a director of IT position) and tell them forget it? Thanks.
