So You Want a Job?

Don't set your phone to block unidentified numbers... Do you not wonder why no one has called you back for any jobs?

Consider telling me why the hell you should be hired as an administrative assistant when your entire resume shows medical assisting or casheiring at Starbucks.

Your typing is not "fast" if it's 40 wpm.

Anyone who says they are "perfectly suited" to a job that involves filing, copying, typing, and sending out mailings is immediately suspect.

A long letter telling me how awesome you are with no accompanying resume, but with a salary request of twice what the typical administrative position goes for is probably the wrong tactic.

Try not to forget that you've applied for a job by the time by the time I call you to schedule an interview.

If you're going to BS, do it well. Chances are I'm far better at it than you are and I smell you coming.
