>I’ve got my first real live interview today. The lady who set me up with it might be a little off or just dumb. She didn’t really have a job description, so she just read the resume of the girl who is leaving the position. That really doesn’t help me.
People use words in resumes to describe their jobs that are a little puffed up. They aren’t lying, just being euphemistic. For example, “creating/designing marketing materials” means making flyers. A job description given to a personnel agency tends to be more true to the task.
We were going over the description on the phone. I am the kind of person who tries to cut through the bullshit and figure out what’s really going on. I ask her what she thinks “due diligence” means. She suggested that I look it up in the dictionary. I know what the fuck the definition is, I want to know what this chick meant by putting it in her resume!
