Actually if you go to a job fair this is exactly what happens. I had two separate people at a job fair tell me they grab a small amount from their stack and throw the rest away because they get so many resumes
@Thatbright, thanks for the warning, not doing job fairs any more
@Eeveelution, this is probably common practice at many businesses. Your best bet is to keep going to job fairs AND go directly to other businesses with your resume. Statistically speaking, the more places you go to, the more likely you are to get a callback.
@WhoseLineIsItAnyway, Hmmm ok I already have a good job but I had someone vouching for me
@Eeveelution, and you're proving the second point that it's not what you know, but who you know. Glad that you made it.
@WhoseLineIsItAnyway, hehe thanks
Special place in hell for this person.
At my job whenever we were hiring I preformed what I called the idiot test by looking at the address contact information. One of the spaces asked for the county your mailing address was in. Any potential employee that filled that space with "USA" went right into the trash.
I was disappointed at how often that happened.
@empress, would you prefer United States? I don't see either as being wrong. if they wrote just America on the other hand....
@onlyspongebobquotes, the resume asked for the COUNTY (as in Orange county in California for example)not the COUNTRY. Sorry to say but I cant have our interview continue any further, sir. We'll be in touch. Lol
@empress, this saddens me but I realize my error...i must now found a county named Usa (oosah) with a street named Usa, in Usaville. but here's the kicker...ill found it in mexico!
@onlyspongebobquotes, *chants patrioticly* oosah! Oosah! Oosah!
I get a weird Dangarompa vibe from this
