What's The Frickin' Point?

As if job hunting wasn't bad enough, why do some people send interest e-mails only to dash your hopes one you've opened them? I've gotten several e-mails already stating that they have seen my resume on [fill in the job site--Monster, Careerbuilder, Indeed, etc.] and they really think I would be a great match for a job they have open. Then they go into what the job is. I've gotten posting for a night shift security guard at a juvenile facility, three for a home telemarketing business and one that claims I can earn up to $5,000 in one week--granted it never mentions what I'd have to do. You know, they like to tell you you're actually housing cocaine mules after you've given them your information for the W-2's.

With all of these crappy e-mails, you'd think my objective statement read, "Here is my experience. I now lay my hopes and dreams before you for you to crush or piss on. Enjoy." Bastards!

Oh yes... I forgot about those. Yep I get those too. I never knew that rolling my eyes muttering to myself that the economy sucks every time I check out my incredible shrinking 401K, qualified me to be an analyst. Who knew.
