Work imitating life....

Whilst on my job hunt in this past three months I’ve come across so many automated application responses and recently when I’ve been applying for roles that I’m over-qualified for, I’ve been getting those ‘You have not been successful in proceeding to the next stage of the recruitment process’ letters too. Ho-hum.

Now in my current short-term contract role I find myself writing functional specifications for a system to produce such letters. It’s depressing analysing all the different types of letters for ineligibility, rejection, withdrawal of application and then physically fleshing out how they will work/appear/worded - to be sent top people , just like me.

Oh well, I’m moving on to letters of offer and-the-like soon…. Hopefully in my real life soon too!

Glad you can get the yucky stuff out of the way before you get to the good stuff (HUG)

Oh, I hope that letter typing turns prophetic Liss!

Hey Liss! I recognised your face from i-do! Thanks for following my blog. Through you now I've found a bunch of the i-do'ers.
Your girls are adorable. Cannot believe how big they are now.
