The complete, unedited, and unabridged response to a job query I recently made. No “Hello.” No “Thanks for your response.” No “Sincerely” or “Best” or sign-off of any other kind. Also — with the exception of the question mark — no correct punctuation.
Reproduced here not to pick on poor mechanics, as fun as that always is (“Other concentration with the subject”? No, sorry, all my experience is entirely from concentrate…), but rather to illustrate the totally effed power dynamics in the job-seeker/potential-employer interrelationship. My cover letter was well thought-out and carefully worded; my resume was tailored to the position’s demands. Miss HR’s response? Perfunctory at best, derisive at worst.
I’m about to respond. I’m considering, “No-sorry. P.S.-I have no idea what your talking about.”
