I hereby vow that if I am ever in a position where I am the hiring manager/contact, for any open positions with my company, I will respond to all job inquiries via email or the telephone.
This is my vow to all future job hunters of America.
I think it is so rude not to reply to a job applicant.
Especially if they write a kick ass cover letter customed to you.
Especially if they have interviewed with you.
Especially if this is the second or third job posting for the open position.
What gives? Do I suck?
I don't understand. How hard is it to reply to an email? Simply say something along the lines of "Thank you for submitting your resume, we will be in contact with those that are invited to interview. Good bye and good luck."
How hard is that? Because I know that you received my email and I know that you are a person because its going to your email address and not some random HR filter email.
In other news, Rachael Ray and Megan Mullally kicked off their own talk shows today. Rachael yelled the entire hour and had (snooze) Diane Sawyer as her first guest. Megan kicked ass with Will Ferrell, naturally I was laughing my ass off.
Then it was time for me to attend an unemployment workshop. I had to go. The unemployment peeps basically sent out an invitation/ warning, that failure to attend could stop your benefit payments. OUCH. My biggest mistake was looking cute for this seminar. Huge mistake. Lesson learned. I stuck out like a sore thumb.
I got to log off now as Oprah is about to kick off the season and I may need something to write/ complain about later, since I am up to 2 posts a day (Thanks, Bev).
But I am running out of interesting stuff to write about, so is there anything you'd like to know about me? I promise I'll write and answer all your questions.
I'm nice like that unlike other people in the world, I'm looking directly at you Hiring Manager, YES, YOU!
