    If you apply for a job, try not to hang up on anyone you think is a telemarketer for a month or so. I'm doing some recruiting right now for one of my company's clients, and more than half the people who actually apply for the damn jobs we post just hang up on you when you try to call them. Sometimes you even get the company name out, and you'd think they'd remember that they applied for a job there and at least stay on the damn phone long enough to see what the call is about. Nope.

    Also, some random but often ignored advice. Run a grammar and spelling check on your resume. Nothing is more annoying or off-putting than a sloppy resume, regardless of a person's experience. And organize the thing. I don't know a recruiter that actually gives a **** how it's organized, what's towards the top and bottom and all that. Just group it so it's readable and all the info is accessible. The crap some people put out there as there resume is ridiculous. No one seems to know the difference between its and it's, to and too, and they're, their and there.

    Sorry. I'm the only one working late today and needed to spew.

    LOL I feel for your dude.


    How about doing it this way.


    CONGRATULATIONS you got the job. Might just cut down on the # of hang ups.


    BTW if you hate telemarketers as much as I do then do NOT hang up. Just pop open a beer and see how long you can get them to stay on the phone until THEY hang up in utter frustration.

    not that this anything to do with the original post, but i wouldn't be rude to telemarketers. they are just normal people trying to make a living, and a lot of these people have no better options. they are exploited by enormous credit card banks and other corporations just like any industry that exploits their workers. telemarketers are annoying as hell, but if you really want to piss off the people responsible for interrupting your dinner time or whatever, then write a letter to your credit card issuer telling them you decided to close your account because they use telemarketing as their primary selling vehicle.

    English is what people will never understand, and I don't blame them. A Germanic language with Latin rules applied that's developed in a country bigger than most, with dialects and accents and enough cultural garbage abounding to confuse native speakers, much less foreigners trying to learn.

    If I could get you a job, I would bro. Right now the union I'm dealing with has a stick up their ass and the hiiring budget isn't going to ramp up again until fourth quarter anyway. I'm cruising. I need some time off bad.
