Explosion from the Past

I got home today, and Dr. Mad Scientist told me I had a message on the machine:

Bezzie, you sent your resume a while back. I hope you're employed. Have a job if you're in need--full benefits too, adminstrative, 9 to 5 hours. My number is...



I sent you my resume THREE YEARS AGO.

Everytime I drive anywhere near Denville I get the shivers remembering that "interview."

But hey, maybe this is good news--the economy is bouncing back. People are so desperate to find workers they're consulting three year old resumes.

But in reality, it's probably just a weirdo running a flim flam office...

Dont knock it till you check it out. You didnt think you were going to find another apt that quick or close either (short of parking situation). A door isnt closed till its shut remember!

My "blast from the past" this week was a good friend from my old job calling the wrong Amy. We had a nice 5-min, chat, but that's all the time I had.

And yeah. Who the hell pulls out a three-year-old stack of resumes when they need to hire? Wow.

That's crazy. After three years, you wouldn't think they'd hold on to resumes anymore.

Boy! I that weird! Most places hold them for a year if that. I would LOVE someone to hold my resume for even that long!!! Love, Mom

That does seem strange! My boss recently hired someone, and she must have gotten at least 100 resumes for the one position, if not more. On a good note, my husband just got called back to work (exactly a year to the day they laid him off)! I'm hopeful that's a good sign that the economy is turning around.

Your link doesn't go anywhere, but I assume it was a blog post about a particularly interesting interview. Good to know there are options, I guess.

A year after I graduated from college, I got a phone call from the company I had interned with 2 years before (crappy internship) asking if I was interested in a job with them.
Um. NO. Have a job. Like it. Kthxbye.
Random - but I suppose I can't blame them for trying....

So, uhm, are you going to call him back? LMAO! I couldn't type that with a straight face!!

I always thought, "We'll keep your resume on file," meant, "we'll be throwing this away as soon as we [hang up on this rejection phone call /mail this rejection letter/click send on this rejection email]."

That guy was too creepy. Delete delete delete!
