Here's Part 3 in the saga that's my never ending job search.
[aside: The type of position and salary requiremnts I seek are in my profile on the job board.}
I'm chilling at work on Friday, getting prepared to come home sense my boss was generous enough to let us leave an hour early. My phone rings. It's some recruiter chick that saw my resume on a job board and has a "GREAT" opportunity for me.
Recruiter Chick: Well see here's the thing. They aren't very flexible with what I can pay you. What are you making now.
I'm passing this over to my Baby Daddy. He need a job and he'd better call her too!
Now, if this chick saw my resume on the job board with it's accompanying profile, why in de hayle did she waste her time and mine calling me? My profile clearly states that my minimum salary is $36k. How she gonna try to offer me $12K less? C'mon. The position sounds great, but I'm not willing to take $12K less that what I'm asking for. If she woulda upped it to at least $30K, I prolly woulda taken her more seriously.
Then she tries to soften me up.
RC: You have such a great speaking voice and sound like you have a wonderful personality. I know you'll fit in well with this team. Northrup Grumman is a good company.
This chick has to be desperate to fill this position if she's willing to kiss my ass like that. There's no way in hell I'mma support an entire team of people for 24K. Been there, done that, and lived to talk about it.
