Today I made contact with that recruitment agency from the safe distance of email. And I promptly received an out-of-office auto-reply.
They said they'd get back to me tomorrow - St. Valentines Day. Spooky!
I knew they still loved me.
But to be honest, I feel like a stalker. And pathetically, it's not an isolated incident.
I am a repeat offender.
If I look at the many job vacancies, to which I've re-applied, after positions are re-advertised by the same organizations (over the course of a year, year in-year-out) I could easily be, technically labelled a serial stalker.
And, despite routinely receiving their friendly(?) rejection letters - when I see the same roles, reappearing at later dates on Seek - like GroundHog Day, undaunted, I re-submit re-fashioned applications .....Just like a forever hopeful Pavlov's dog.
If only - in such cases - I could beat the system, by changing my name to something that might not get me overlooked, but SHORTLISTED!
Can you do that?
Would it really be stretching the truth, if I altered my persona by inserting my dog's name (Coco) when signing off cover letters?
One could always blame spellcheck?
