This is an interesting mix of ideas. One one hand you have one article (13 Types of Job Applicants You Should Never Hire) which shows why 13 types of applicants are not ideal candidates. You can see why the article makes its point and some will say they valid while others would agree.
On the second hand, the other article (When Bad Job Applicants Can Be Your Best Hire) shows why these 13 types can be good candidates. It shows how their traits would be ideal for employers. Again, you can see how the points are made and like other article, some will say their valid and even agree with them.
How are these articles useful? Like anything in the job search, there are pros and cons to everything & that's what these articles are. One shows the 'cons' while the other the 'pros'. As a job seeker, you have to see the pros and cons they are making & see if anything applies to YOU. As we said, both articles are interesting and the information useful, but it's up to you what you take out if it!!
We highly recommend you read both and see not only what help you can get out of it but advice too! To view the articles, click the links below.
