This is the job you really wanted. You’ve been through the interview process. Tricky, but nothing you couldn’t handle, and it has made you realise even more that this really is the job for you. You even liked your new boss, and they liked you, too.
So imagine your disappointment when an anonymous looking email drops into your letter box with the job offer. Half a dozen attachments for you to download, sign and return.
You’re really ready to go, and this is what they send you? You have to work through the documents, one by one. It’s dull, and while formal and compliant, it isn’t at all impressive – and certainly a let-down after all the effort the company put into trying to get you on board in the first place.
