Community Etiquette & Civility 101

The community portion of Jobcase is a wonderful and diverse crossroads of education levels, language, culture, race, ethnicity, age, gender, sexuality , and faiths (or lack thereof). It represents and is represented by individuals who all have a singular purpose:

To find work and to help others.

At times, as with any large group, you may stumble upon things with which you don't agree. It is in how you react to those things and with your fellow Jobcaser that will ultimately define you on this site.

We are all here voluntarily. No one is forcing you to be a member of this community. If you see something with which you don't agree you have two options.

1) Engage your fellow Jobcasers in civil discourse (with civil being the optimal word)

2) Ignore it and move on

Sometimes you will see messages that are hard to understand due to poor writing. Whether there is a language barrier, disability, poor education, or some other unknown variable, if you can't understand what someone is asking, request that they clarify.

If you can use context clues to determine what someone is asking or stating, answer the question or offer a response. Do not attack them or point out their inadequacies. It doesn't make you a better person to drag someone else down. It makes you a jerk.

If a post is so ridiculous to you that it makes your blood boil, ignore it. No need to become a keyboard warrior and take someone to task. It takes a lot less effort to be kind than it does to be hateful. If you find that the opposite is true, then the problem is with you and not with the people you feel the need to attack or belittle.

In the end, we are all human beings. That is our common denominator and that alone should be good enough to lift one another up; especially when the majority of the tribe is all in the same boat.
