Job hunters unite (rolling)


#1

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?


#2

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN


#3

TO WHOMSOEVER IT DOST CONCERNETH


#4

dear filthy capitalist scum…


#5

Discarded LCD lyrics


#6

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

Didn’t get the job of course.


#7

dear job cunt,


#8

For the FAO of whom it may concern


#9

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


#10

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


#11

Dear Bootlicker/Neocon//Other


#12

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:


#13

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.


#14

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


#15

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?


#16

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


#17

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


#18

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.


#19

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.
