|03:57 pm - When it rains it pours. But unfortunately this wasn't water.|
Ok so you know how I bitch about not hearing about jobs.
Well I keep my cell on me all the time (practically). Including at temp job.
Normally I don't get many calls.
Today I got called 4 times.
3 of which were job related.
Now you might think that good.
1 - Web guy for a bunch or retards. literally Its a web position for one of the mental retardation groups. What was mis posted on Akron's posting for this job. Unpaid internship. Sorry, need to eat.
2 - Database Administrator. not even sure which company it was as the guy spoke fast. Asked one question, How much? aka Salary Requirements. I answer, "Well I would like to make what I was at my last professional job which was about $30,000/yr.
Guy sounded like he could not hang up faster, "Well thats all I need to know from you at this point. I will call if I need anything else" or something to that affect.
3 - Dee called. He wants to catch up. Meaning he probably wants something from me.
4. - Recruiter calling about a job opportunity. leaves a message. I call back. He starts the pitch off presenting the opportunity not for me, but if I KNEW SOMEONE for the position. Because position was for 7+ years. Was actually 2 positions, 1 could of taken 5 years but needed two years .NET experience.
Which I can't claim cause I HAVEN'T BEEN WORKING WITH IT SINCE IT CAME OUT. but i can't even bluff a year with .NET cause I haven't done anything with it.
So yeah. 1 recruiter looking for me to do his job. 2 jobs who don't pay or are looking for someone who will work for burger flipping jobs. and a friend who i'm pessimistic about dealing with at times.
Such a lovely day.
Still no news about ebay.
