How Do Your Values Affect Your Job Selection?

Candidates have all kinds of reasons to NOT pursue certain companies or job opportunities.  I’ve heard plenty of them.  “I don’t want to work on a PC. I need better benefits.  I can’t work in a cubicle farm.”

One of the more unique reasons for turning away an opportunity is Personal Values.  Sometimes there is something the company does or has as policy that leads candidates to reject job offers.  This is a touchy subject for employers to deal with, but one they should address if they see trends in the recruiting efforts.

I recently shared a survey on this topic on AOL/emurse.  Take a look and be sure to vote, too.  Please feel free to comment on this post if you have any good stories on this topic.
