Twitter users were quick to react to his tweet
“I'm curious to know how long it took you to interview 35 people in one day.”
“Leave Mokopane out of it, you were devastated by your chosen candidates.”
“Dress code is very important to any job interview, don't let anyone tell you otherwise.”
“You want me to buy a suit for a job that I’m not sure of?”
“My experience tells me that one cannot interview 35 management candidates, and therefore this was not a management post. Now, it's clear that HR is not improving in SA. We are long past the era of appearance when looking for talent. Why was the interview not remote even???”
"I just want recruiters to actually stop tweeting."
