Job hunters unite (rolling)


Boring job application question - if you don’t know the name of the person you would be reporting to and it doesn’t specify on the job advert, who would you address the cover letter to? Sir/Madam seems too bland and impersonal. Any ideas?






dear filthy capitalist scum…

the last one I sent was addressed to ‘HR Department’.

Didn’t get the job of course.


dear job cunt,


For the FAO of whom it may concern


do any of you have any QUALMS about sending off a cv to some recruitment company you don’t really know? basically has all the necessary info to do a pretty deece identity thefting


Either go with sir / madam or phone the company and ask some questions about the job and get a name.


Dear Bootlicker/Neocon//Other


had a job interview today btw (at one of the better job places…with the higher salaries). it went ok. don’t think I got it but am pretty certain I wouldn’t have got an interview without your advice :slight_smile:


also Sir/Madam is really old fashioned and sounds shit and non-LGBT friendly to me. if someone addressed me as that I’d be like wow no.


do they actually care? I went with 'Dear [name of company] on one and they seemed to be implying I’d have got the job if they didn’t get rid of it before it started


I just would really like a nice job. doesn’t even need to pay that much but something I feel happy going to in the morning and know I’d be good at. do these things exist?


How do people apply for jobs when they already have a job
I never have time to do anything


Yey, that’s great news. Who knows, maybe it went better than you think! I’ve just emailed you :slight_smile:


As long as you’re not putting your date of birth, NI number or bank details on your CV I think you’ll be ok. Remove your full address and just put partial postcode if you’re worried.


this is my problem - I need to look for stuff but when I get home after a day at work I just want to sit around doing as little as possible, not work on my CV or sort out applications for stuff :sweat:


Am checking for a job ATM, but just some casual work to keep me going when uni starts back. There’s a job going for 5 hours a week (but I’d pretty much be guaranteed OT with that) but it might be a ballache to get to.
