Job Stuff 33

This is more or less a newsletter for job seekers like myself.  I try to find good job search strategies, bad job search strategies, pure BS and job related articles every week.  So far I’ve never run short.  Please pass this around. I’m not doing this for any reason other than the desire to help and communicate with other job seekers.  If you have any good links or stories, especially stories please comment.  If you want the story private, just put that in the comment and I will trash it and  not let it post.

The best cover letter he ever received.

I just had an idea. Write the body of your cover letters in twitter, but don’t hit send. That will force you to be concise and clear. I suspect that what this guy liked was the fact that the sender didn’t waste the HM’s time.

I guess that Intel didn’t really need those foreign workers after all.

Intel Lays Off 12,000 People After Lobbying For More Foreign Workers

These big companies don’t seem  that the optics they create with things like this are not good for business.  Or maybe they don’t care.

Imagine a world without HR.

Three reasons why your job applications “process” sucks.

Actually the big reason is right there in the word. Process.  Cattle are processed. Sausage comes out the other side. People aren’t cattle.
