Offer Letter

  • I am not the frickin Buddha
    • I need a job to pay my bills, and I want that letter now!
    • The verbal offer was a month ago; what is taking so long?
    • I put my job search on hold just for you; I can’t go back to looking, again

Feedback from That Final Interview Round

  • I met 200 people across 5 separate days, what else do you want?  My children? Fine, take them
  • I was funny, clever, made eye contact, answered every question, what else do you want? Blood, fine
  • I heard ” You are perfect for the job” about 300 times, what else do you want? Human Sacrifice?

Anything After Making Application?

  • Hello,
    • Is there anybody in there?
      Just nod if you can hear me.
      Is there anyone at home?
  • I spent 2 weeks on that friggin cover letter, where are you?
  • I fit the job description perfectly, you are stupid not to call me!
  • My resume is perfect, what’s going on?
  • I was one of the first 10 applicants, hello?
  • I feel so:
    • Abused
    • Confused
    • Abandoned
    • Hurt
    • Angry
    • Tired
