Enough is Enough... We Hope....
I'm very superstitious these days, and I don't want to jinx it. But trust me -- it's a gem. I didn't realize how much of a gem it was until after I sent my resume to the outside recruiter. Then I really began to look up the company, including magazine articles about the founders and the company objectives and such. And I fell a little bit in love.
So I sent a follow-up letter to the recruiter, telling her how interested I was in the position and the company. And I heard... nothing.
I want this job, people. I mean, I want any job. I just applied online as a barista at Starbucks, so yeah... there's that. But this job... this job... I want to work for this company. Really, really badly.... So, rather than leave it to some recruiter who will surely leave me on the trash pile for any number of reasons (my age, the length of my present unemployment history, etc.), today, I went straight to company's website, and sent them an e-mail directly, telling them, in effect, that this was kismet, I was made for them, they were made for me, and the Fates must not be denied.
Wish me luck....
