That's not what he said.And because the rational behind hiring him was purely because he took a lower paying job then unemployment.
Not any company I've ever hired for (which includes several very large ones). Accepting resumes and keeping them on file, sure. Interviews, no. Only if actually looking to fill a position. It's a waste of time and resources otherwise. Isn't that your whole beef with the scenario in the first place?And actually companies do interview purely to keep abreast of potential hires, even if they aren't interested in filling positions.
It can happen, but that wouldn't be what he was talking about.Firms may create positions merely to grab an excellent candidate even if they don't have work for them at the current date. Call it denial of talent to competitors.
