8. That's why I never trust the "find a friend" tools in any social netwroking app.
Edited on Sat Feb-13-10 10:10 PM by Lisa0825
I am in HR, and I get 10-20 requests a week from people I had only emailed once regarding job applications.

However, if this makes you feel any better, I don't think it reflects on them by any means... it's just a bit of noise of modern technology.
