Smokeless in Seattle

If you want to get hired, don't let smoking get in the way.

    Great article. I did an internship with a CFO group in Seattle. The group was discussing healthcare costs and how to reduce the expenditure. A insurance consultant said hiring managers should smell candidates when they come in for an interview. Don't hire them if they smoke.

    It is more than a tad disconcerting to have a job interviewer "smell" you when you walk into a job interview. What's to keep the candidate from perceiving harrassment of some sort, or for reaching for the bag for some pepper spray. This view of 'quelling the smell', 'don't accept a job interview over a meal invitation', and 'don't hire them if they smoke' is totalitarian, discriminatory, vacant and condescending to smokers, especially those who have been doing it for a long time, are addicted and have no public option plans in place to get help and advice on quitting.

    I just cannot fathom that this advice can be taken on with great effect WITHOUT QUITTING SMOKING ALTOGETHER.

    One of my current interview sets is for a very fitting position in Seattle. The position and company are very enticing on their own. Reading this article, just upped my desire to relocate here 1000 fold. Are the apt/condo complexes smoke free too? How wonderful! To be able to sit on your balcony or take a swim and not choke on smoke from your neighbor. My kind of neighborhood!
