Welcome to job search 2010. I've really stepped it up a notch in the job search. Yesterday, I sent out a bunch of resumes. Today I got a call.
Most employers do not call right away unless they are desperate. Or it's a scam. This prospective employer left a message as I missed the call. Upon listening to the message, I immediately googled the company's name. The first thing that popped up was "ABC Company scam." I searched that and read some message boards.
What was said in the message boards, was what the recruiter left in the message. This made me go hmmm. This job is a sales based job, not something I am keen on but I can handle it. It would be something to tied me over until I find a better position. At this point my goal is to pay for Aaron's daycare.
When I spoke to the recruiter, she asked all the phone appropriate questions for a phone interview. I was thinking she was legit when we set up an interview time.
She asked me to bring a copy of my resume with me. This normal protocol in the job interview process.
She also told me to wear business appropriate attire.
Seriously? I can't believe she said that.
We talked at length of my previous positions.
I've worked for the government.
I worked for Big Name Cell Phone company.
I didn't sleep with anyone to get any of these jobs.
I assume I got them based on my interview skills and not showing up in jeans and flip flops.
Did she really think I'd show up in non business attire clothing? Jeez.
I even knew to wear a collared shirt and black skirt for my first ever job interview at McDonald's when I was 15. And I got that job.
If something is to good to be true, than it probably is. But I am curious none the less.
If they ask me to give them my own money for training. I will get up and walk.
