I am SO ready for this long weekend to get started already!! This week is moving at a fucking snails pace, made only slower by the fact that I have had a shit ton of resumes to wade through in my search for a new assistant. I know that there are a lot of people out of work, and that they are literally applying for every job, but some of it's just ridiculous. Here are some of this weeks highlights:
Is it really prudent that your resume feature that 1 semester you spent at college? In 1980?
Call me old fashioned, but I believe that when applying for a job, one should use actual English.
Its so great when you can download pre-made resume templates, but such a hassle to have to remember to put in your information.
You would have to see the ad to now whats wrong with, so let me help. The job listing is for a part-time assistant, 2 days during the week, and every Saturday. And it's about an hour and a half from Vincennes...so probably not the right area.
Oh, me too!! Unfortunately, this is an office assistant position.
This is the email I recieved. In its entirity. There is no name. No phone number. No nothing. And I really wanted to hire this one...
So the search continues...
