I love my job, but as a freelancer part of my job is to search for new jobs all the time. So I send out resumes from time to time, while secretly hoping that Huffington Post will discover my political blog and pay me wildly extravagant sums of money for ranting about anything and everything.
A while back I applied for a freelance job through CareerBuilder.com. Apparently, without meaning to, I also signed up for their Random Weekly Job Search Email List. They now send me helpful job listings every week.
Here are just a few of the jobs for which they apparently think I am qualified. My comments are in red.
Texas/Mexico Sales Representitive. Find, call, sample, quote, close sales and negotiate blanket orders from new customers are the key skills we are looking for.
I could definitely help this company with their spelling and sentence structure. Not so sure about the rest of the job, though.
National Sales Fraud Mitigation. Base pay $89,000 - $130,000 per year. This person will utilize Microsoft CRM for tracking and generating all prospects and generate $1 Million in newly signed revenue within our key target verticals, Internet Retailer 500, travel and entertainment clients along with other CNP prospects.
Dang. $omething about thi$ one i$ very attractive. Unfortunately I have no idea what the heck they are talking about.
Temporary Halloween Sales Pros. We offer a generous salary, great working environment, and some of the most incredible advancement opportunities in retail. Party City also offers a comprehensive benefit package including medical, vision and dental insurance, paid time off, tuition assistance, 401K, Associate discount and much more!
Now you're talking! Party City sounds like an awesome place to work! For one month out of the entire year I could have medical, vision and dental insurance!! I am truly excited.
Thanks, CareerBuilder! I can't wait to see what you come up with next week.
