brought in the possible new hire yesterday for a tour. Introduced him to the department manager & gee, what an awkward introduction that was.
Me: "Hi manager, this is so-and-so, the colleague I mentioned was interested in the opening"
NewGuy: "Hi, nice to meet you. I'm currently working for xyz widget maker doing similar work to your company's products"
NewGuy: "We work with (thing one, thing two, thing three), and I understand you work with these things, too"
Me: "Um, OK, I'll take NewGuy to see the lab and the manufacturing floor."
I get that an introvert doesn't enjoy talking to people, but it's hard to hire someone if you're not willing to even try.
<sigh> <people leave managers, not companies>
