>I recently decided to look for a new job. I can’t tell you the amount of spam I am getting from posting my resume on the various job search sites.
I received one today with the subject “We does it easier and with speed than ever to attain the organizations you require…” I don’t know what pisses me off more, the spam or the poor grammar.
I also keep getting this email from a “company” that wants to hire me to sell insurance. First of all, I’m not a salesperson. I don’t have that personality nor do I even like the idea of trying to convince someone to buy something they may or may not need. Secondly, insurance is a big scam.
>Oh come on now!
What are we going to do without our frequent helping of Biff stories?
Every time you write about him I get a 80’s flashback and the whole yuppie thing. The only thing we need to complete the picture is a gal named “Buffy” or something like that.
>I’ve worked here for so many years I’ve got plenty of Biff stories to tell.
Not to mention stuff John has done as well as new characters like the guy who could be Thurston Howell III’s son.
>Sounds like you’ve had some bad experiences with insurance.
Certainly, policies like the “no pay” plan immortalized on Monty Python are scams, but insurance can be a way of managing risk.
I wish I paid less for medical insurance each year, but my payment is manageable, while some of the medical disasters I’m protected against could otherwise wipe me out.
My own favorite insurace scam was perpetrated by the owners of Major legaue baseball against Lloyds of London. They got Lloyds to insure them handsomely against a baseball strike. They then kind of provoked a strike and extended it as long as the lloyds benefits permitted. When the Lloyds insurers realized they were essentially bankrolling the strike they were ANNOYED, but they still paid up.

>It’s still easiest to find jobs by talking to everybody you know and networking. When people tell you they have no idea where you might find a job, ask them if they know someone else who might have a suggestion.
When I’m job-hunting, the hardest part for me is that I don’t really believe there are ANY jobs out there until I stumble over one. But I keep forcing myself to talk to people because, well, maybe I’m wrong and thy know something…
