An HR manager recently got a thank-you note on her iPhone that read:

The manager had liked the candidate in the interview, but after getting this text message, she put his application in the reject pile.

  • Why do you think she rejected the candidate?
  • Was that fair?
  • Should “textspeak” be considered acceptable workplace communication?

Answer the questions and explain what you would do as a manager in this situation.
