Don't Make this Job Search Blunder

  1. 29


    Abbie, an RN, was unhappy with her job, so she submitted her resignation. She was sure she’d have no trouble finding a new position because of the nursing shortage in her area.

    She emailed cover letters to dozens of potential employers and attached her resume to each one. Two weeks later, Abbie was dismayed and bewildered that she had not received even one request for an interview.

    Finally she received a message from a prospective employer that explained the reason she hadn’t heard from anyone else.

    It read: “Your resume was not attached as stated. I do, however, want to thank you for the vegetable lasagna recipe.”

    I've sent out few of my own, without secret family receipes, even , and have neard nothing. Can anybody tell me why it's socially acceptable, in America, to ask for aplicants and then to not even ackowledge that you even received them, much less to tell them 'thanks but no thanks'? I hear it's a rude custom peculiar to America. And it's not as though I sent in my information for a job that would normally receive 100's or 1000's of interested applicants. Ten would be my best guess.

    Reminds me of this woman, who instead of attaching a resume, accidentally attached a picture of a crazy-eyed Nic Cage:

    You would be surprised. I have a friend that works in HR at a local hospital and she said they get 100-500 applicants for every open position.
