Following directions and orders on how to do something is common. Be it to a kindergarten student or a PhD student, an employee, and during a job application process, we all find ourselves in situations where we need to follow instructions. Instructions guide us on how we should do what is needed and also enable us to do it in an orderly manner. Recently my friend who has a PhD in economics applied for a job. Having applied hundreds of similar jobs, he didn’t read even a single instruction. Unfortunately, one of the instructions required him to retype his entire resume in addition to the attached file. The hiring manager reviewed several resumes and found that he was the perfect man for the position. However, because he didn’t retype his resume as instructed he was disqualified. The hiring manager sent an email explaining why they could not proceed with his application. My friend regretted not following a simple instruction that cost him his dream job.
