AMERICA! The Job Hunt...Starts!
This is why I love America:
"Hi Judith. Welcome back! We have not met but thought I would reach out and see if we can meet. Your resume online seems to indicate you are moving back this month. If you are here I would like to work with you to see if I can help you find a new role. I am a fiannce and accounting recruiter here in Houston and have been in this business for 7 years. Prior to that I was a CFO in a publicly held company. Would be delighted to work with you. Thanks for the reply. Look forward to meeting you and see if we can find a new role for you in Houston. "
This was from a recruiter who pulled my CV from Monster, which I updated on Sunday indicating that I was moving back to the US in September and would be available for a J.O.B.
Now she spelled finance wrong, but really it's about the fact that a real person wrote me regarding employment.
She didn't ask for a photo.
She didn't ask for my nationality.
Or my age.
Or my passport number.
A real inquiry from a real person.
That acts professional (except for the spelling error).
I wonder how long it will take me to find a job in the US...
