Erin is reviewing applications for the position of Cost Accountant to be based at All-Weather’s plant in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. She has received 12 applications for the position. As she picks up the first two résumés (given below), she sees in them a few problems right away (like most HR executives, Erin detests typos).
Suddenly a thought strikes her. Why not ask Kioni, who is reading an old departmental report, to go through the résumés, preparing a list of their strengths and weaknesses? Not only will the exercise help Kioni get used to something she herself might do in the future, but Kioni’s going through the résumés will also offer Erin another perspective on these applicants. As always, Kioni jumps at the chance to do what she likes to call “real” work. Based on your reading of Chapter 11, the following job description for the position, and the two résumés attached, help Kioni analyze the two applicants for the position.
Question – What are their strengths and weaknesses as highlighted by their résumés?
