When you create an online blog, you are asked in your Setup if the blog will contain “Adult Content”. If you choose “Yes”, viewers of your blog will see a warning message and will be asked to confirm that they want to proceed to your blog.
I chose “No” when I set up my blog, so I am ever mindful of what I say here. I am hoping that the use of the word “Poo” in today’s post title does not offend. There was just no other way to say it.
You see, I keep coming across the same positions at the same companies, yet months apart. For example, I applied for a position at a company in February of this year. I never heard anything back and the job disappeared from all job boards.
Today, however, that job is re-posted — with today’s date as the post date. I am completely qualified for the position, I swear to you I am. So I will apply again.
I can’t tell you how tempted I am, when this happens, and I see it more often than you’d think, to start my cover letter by saying I had applied for the job several months ago and if you had hired me then you wouldn’t be re-posting it. This may seem completely inappropriate and unprofessional, but what, really, do I have to lose? My dignity, confidence and politeness have all taken a beating through this process.
I’m gonna do it. And in ALL CAPS. Maybe in red font. With yellow highlights.
Yet another element of this job search that is really is a crock of . . .
Now do you get the “poo” part???
