So I put this up on craigslist. I have been looking so long for a job and have put up resumes and submitted applications to so many places and gotten the run around so many times that I figured I don’t have anything to lose so why not be real with people. Craigslist is a more casual setting anyways, seems it would be the most appropriate place for this message.
I have recently finished school in Casa Grande and moved to Gilbert. I have held multiple positions in offices and I have worked in food service. I have administrative/clerical experience and customer service experience. I worked for two offices at my college so I am familiar with a professional environment. I have a sense of urgency and a strong desire to be employed full time Monday through Friday. I want a substantial work. I’ve spent a good 6 years asking ‘would you like to buy a drink with that today?’ or ‘would you like to upgrade to our MVP account?’ or some other junk like that. I am ready to be responsible for more than that and I am certainly ready for something a little more rewarding. I have an Associate Degree in General Studies with a focus on Graphic Design and Journalism. I am an experienced and moderately published writer. I am also a computer hobbyist. I know my way well around Microsoft Office programs as well as Adobe programs. Even if I don’t know my way around a particular program, given a short amount of time I can learn it just as well. If you have a opening that requires someone to have a stewardship state of mind, and not a go-for or read from a script bottom rung job, and you want someone who is going to take it seriously and make it his own then send me an e-mail and we’ll discuss it.
-I WILL NOT TAKE A POSITION SERIOUSLY IF IT MEETS ONE OF THESE CONDITIONS:-
1. It has manager in the title but no one works directly beneath me.
2. It has executive in the title but I won’t be receiving a yearly salary. Seriously that word gets thrown around too much, worse than manager.
3. The pay scale has a gi-friggin-gantic range. “Example: You could make 50k-250k depending on your commitment.” If everyone had the potential to sell so much that they could make 250k the company would not be stupid and keep the ones that only make 50k. They are either a stupid company or they are greatly exaggerating.
4. I am ‘pre-qualified’ for the position. Too many times I receive an email that tells me based on my resume they have a position they would like me to interview for. They also instruct me to bring a copy of it with me to the interview location. When I get there the person interviewing has never set eyes on my resume and doesn’t have anything personally prepared for me like the email led me to believe. Also, it’s a dead give away that the job is crap when you meet a bunch of other guys there just like you in the same exact circumstances.
5. I’m not going to a job fair that is just a room filled with people being told to fill out an online applications. I can do that from home if I am so inclined to work for a company.
6. None of this ‘work from home’ or ‘make limitless income without leaving the house’ crap. I want to leave my house, keep your multi-million shut-in jobs to yourself.
7. Forget call centers. I want a meaningful job, something I won’t be embarrassed to say I do. I would be ashamed to say that I call people up and try to sell them things. I feel it is one of the lower forms of existence, let alone work.
I’m sure there are more rules I should have, but for now these are the things that have been most annoying in my job hunt. The following is my resume. Look it over and if you are even considering me in the slightest and have a question or concern, email me with it and I will immediately address it. Hope to hear from you soon.
That’s it. After that I post my resume. I have had one reply so far but I think it might be one of those blanket emails meant to be sent to everyone int he area. I replied with very specific questions so we’ll see if they are even paying attention.
