Dianna Abdala

TO ILLUSTRATE HOW PRECIOUS E-MAIL IS, CONSIDER THE CASE OF DIANNA ABDALA. IN 2005, ABDALA WAS A RECENT GRADUATE OF SUFFOLK UNIVERSITY’S LAW SCHOOL, AND SHE PASSED THE BAR EXAM. SHE THEN INTERVIEWED WITH AND WAS OFFERED A JOB AT A LAW FIRM STARTED BY WILLIAM KORMAN, A FORMER STATE PROSECUTOR.

The following is a summary of their e-mail communications:

Subject: Thank you

Dear Attorney Korman,

At this time, I am writing to inform you that I will not be accepting your offer.
After careful consideration, I have come to the conclusion that the pay you are offering would neither fulfill me nor support the lifestyle I am living in light of the work I would be doing for you. I have decided instead to work for myself, and reap 100% of the benefits that I sew [sic].

Thank you for the interviews.

Dianna L. Abdala, Esq.

Dianna

Given that you had two interviews, were offered and accepted the job (indeed, you had a definite start date), I am surprised that you chose an e-mail and a 9:30 p.m. voicemail message to convey this information to me. It smacks of immaturity and is quite unprofessional. Indeed, I did rely upon your acceptance by ordering stationary and business cards with your name, reformatting a computer and setting up both internal and external e-mails for you here at the office. While I do not quarrel with your reasoning, I am extremely disappointed in the way this played out. I sincerely wish you the best of luck in your future endeavors.

Will Korman

    1. With whom do you agree here-Abdala or Korman? I don’t agree with any of them because both made mistakes that created the situation. 2. What mistakes do you think each party made? One of the mistakes made by both of them was the fact that both could not refrain from insulting one another. If one or the other would have simply been the bigger person and stopped responding, the situation may have not gotten out of hand. But if we focused on each of their mistakes firstly Abdala’s Mistakes:…

    I called Dianna today to follow-up on the sleep study order I faxed over to Neuro Diagnostic sleep centers. I had to leave a message. When she called me back she said that she was holding her sick grandson who was coughing and he had relief only while she held him on her shoulder in the recliner. That is the reason she could not get to the phone when I called, or pick up her cigarette and her drink; the way she described while she didn’t pick up the phone. When I told her that she will be receiving…

    FREEDOM, A CAUSE for CHANGE Throughout history, the restless struggle for freedom has never ceased to be. This is a particularly sensitive issue, and we can't deny that certain nations are ignoring it at a high level. It strikes us, nowadays, how we can still spot news headlines of public figures getting arrested because they are conceived as a threat to their country.
