Poll: Would You Recommend A Friend Just Because She Needs A Job?

Although you know she really needs a job and has experience in the field, you don't think you could work with her. Not only that, but you don't think she would fit in with the group very well.

  • It could ruin your friendship and/or damage your reputation with your employer
