To all HR departments, recruiters and small business owners out there. please respond to all job applications you receive.
People that apply for a new job are humans and deserve to be treated that way. A lot of them put a lot of energy in applying for a new job. They are out of a job and really need one to be able to pay the bills and raise their children, they are currently in a bad job and need the change, they have taken a day off for their interview, ….

Please threat those people with the respect they deserve. I recently witnessed what getting no answer can do to someone. Being rejected for a job itself is bad enough, not knowing the answer and being in this in between phase where you assume to be rejected but are secretly still hoping they will call or email you…. nerve wrecking.

There’s a couple of reasons why you need to reply as an employer.

  • It’s polite to do so, and not doing is bloody rude. It’s common courtesy
  • Being busy is not a good excuse, it means you are managing your time wrong or you are using the wrong tools
  • Legal reasons are not a good excuse either, you could easily create a standard neutral response template that leaves no risk at law suits
  • And last but not least, it puts your company in a bad position. It’s a small world after all, you might want to be looking for more staff later, or they could become customers or suppliers. The former rejected candidates will have a negative image of your company in your head
  • You could get negative reactions on social media that might hurt your reputation

Here’s a link with tips in case you want to start doing things better than you have in the past

Error running a Java migration from 5.0 to 5.5 on Linux
Tue, Mar 14th 2017 1:23p   Wannes Rams
Yesterday I was trying to perform the Java upgrade to the Homepage database from 5.0 to 5.5 on a linux server. The command failed and whatever I tried, it kept on failing. It seemed to interpret the jdbc url as a Java class and then threw an error it could not find it… obviously The command I ran was taken from the technote the official documentation is pointing to the command I tried to ran was: jvm/linux/jre/bin/java -Dfile.encoding=UTF-8 -Xmx1024m -classpath /apps/ibm/data/DBT_HOME/db2j

DB2 10.5 Install on Red Hat
Fri, Jul 29th 2016 12:39p   Wannes Rams
We often complain about IBM documentation (and sometimes for good reasons) but there are moments that I am really grateful about the technotes from IBM. Lately the amount seems to increase and the new formatting corresponding to the new IBM website layout is great. I was installing DB2 10.5 on a Linux box and got an error /apps/ibm/sources/server/db2/linuxamd64/install/db2setup: line 626: /tmp/db2.tmp.2522/db2/linuxamd64/install//db2chgpath: Permission denied /apps/ibm/sources/server/db2/lin
