Looking at my inbox this morning, I’m struck by how soullessly cheerful the jobsite email titles are:
- “You’re in demand by corporate recruiters,[insert your name here]” = if you pay for our premium services, otherwise you can go hang, and even then you’re out of luck if you’re trying to move out of the public sector.
- “10 new jobs from [insert jobsite name here]” = here’s some jobs we got paid extra to hype even though they bear no resemblance either to your posted skillsets, experience or job search criteria.
and my favourite from a freelancer website I use:
- “New jobs/projects matching your skills” = no, not really – not even slightly really, but hey, its another opportunity to prostitute yourself more blatantly than if you were working a regular job.
Yes folks, I’m a ray of sunshine this morning. Must be the wait to see which court letter I get first – the one saying I’m free of the old marriage and can pay my last debts, or the one saying the bank wants me declared bankrupt. Funny old world.
