With great power, comes great responsibilities

This morning, I met with a candidate for a position in my team. The interview went well. He's a pretty pleasant guy and he met most of the criterias we were looking for. He has good attitude, which is what really matters at the end of the day.

While I am not the hiring manager, there is no doubt the influence I had on the hiring decision. I had rejected a couple of candidates before and I have given my approval on a few occasions. If you remember what I said a few weeks earlier (here), the company has changed my life tremendously. It improves not only my life, but the life of my family too.

And now I have the ability to improve someone else's life (or not). This is a huge responsibility indeed. And I will definitely exercise it with care.

Somebody told me that Bonnie commented that we should not hire this guy because he's yong sui (not handsome). I am glad the decision to hire does not fall on her hand. She could have easily destroy so many people's hope without realizing it. I hope she's just kidding but with recent events, I am not so sure anymore.
