When did you graduate?

2 Answers

I'm curious to know, if HR or maybe an Operations Director asked this question, and if that person was in reference to graduation from High School? Or from your Paramedic program? In EITHER context, BOTH answers to that particular inquery would clearly be presented to that person on the resumé in hand. With the only exception being that both parties POSSIBLY attended the same Paramedic Program or College. Otherwise, personally, that question would raise a BIG RED FLAG, and could be concern for a possible "age discrimination" situation... Just my 2¢. Less

I'd also take a few moments to do a quick browser search (if I didn't already have printed material on hand as I usually have had in the past) to refer that Donor to a local food pantry or charitable organization for short term EMERGENCY assistance to acquire FOOD.
