A WHISKER away from my first interview


The New Year has NOT got off to a good start. I had HEARD in the trade press (London Lite) that there will be MORE jobs in the New Year. Well, I can TELL you, this is an UTTER lie. Even the MOST easy-going (me lol) people lose their rag EVENTUALLY (NB this is 84 - EIGHTY FOUR - jobs I have now been OVERqualified for, but FAILED to get an interview for.)

How can I have a 'great' New Year when YOU have just TOTALLY shafted me?

It's people like you who are CAUSING the unemployment rate to soar.

Thanks; for nothing,

Julian

Dear Julian,

As previously explained we have already short listed for this post, so I don’t know how you have been “shafted”. Secondly as you have noticed we are in the process of employing so in response to your comment “It's people like you who are CAUSING the unemployment rate to soar” does not make sense.

I would suggest that if you are having any problems finding employment reevaluate your CV, interview techniques and your own skills & qualifications.

I wish you good luck in the New Year in finding a suitable role.

Kind Regards

Clive Scott

Deputy Manager

Dear Deputy,

How DARE you write back to me in such a patronising manner. You haven't even SEEN my CV or interviewed me YET so you are in NO position to give ANY opinion about them. I find your attitude VERY unprofessional. Perhaps if YOU applied YOURself in a more business-like manner then you would be more than just DEPUTY manager.

Now, let me know by 3pm today when you want to interview me or I'll tell your manager about your insults.

Makes me sick,

Julian

Dear Mark,

Please confirm ASAP if the call at 3pm is an interview or not. I will need to prepare in the next 5 minutes if so.

On a different note, I am sorry that your junior deputy/Scott was so unprofessional about this whole matter. I look forward to working with ***** and making us all a LOT of money.

I look forward to hearing from you ahead of 3pm. IF this is an interview, it would be more convenient if I could reverse the charges. Please confirm in your reply.

Julian.

Scott,

First of all you actively encourage me to apply for the position of General Manager of your gyms so I send an email. Then you give me a load of rubbish about me not making the shortlist BEFORE the deadline has even expired. Then your half-wit deputy tells me to phone you for what ANYONE would have thought would have been an interview. Now you are telling me there will be NO interview anyway. Why on earth are you intent on WASTING MY TIME? Why did your Deputy tell me to call you when he probably KNEW that there wouldn't be an interview.

I tell you something, I am justifiably PISSED OFF and I DEMAND an explanation. I tell you what, this would NOT have happened with Fitness First.

Have you got a position or NOT?

I tell you, this is impossible.

Please let me know; either way.

Julian

Julian

I have forwarded your emails on to Ealing Police Station and I will actively pursue you for harrassment.

I would suggest the reason you have got no further than a Fitness Manager is because you are utterly useless and incapable of communication.

Do not contact any employee of ***** Gym or enter any ***** Gym - any further communication will be sent to the Police and you should be aware that we are tracking your IP address through our IT department.

Regional General Manager

You could always offer you services as a professional gadfly. Harassing people might be a useful service in some situations.

Julian Meteor said...

Is a gadfly related to a dalek?

Anonymous said...

You could get a job as a racist policeman Julian. They are good at harassing people.

Julian Meteor said...

I am NOT racist.
I DO hate black owls though, but with GOOD reason.

Larry Davis said...

Mr. Meteor,
I am flattered by your offer of oral sex. Unfortunately for you I am a heterosexual and am not interested in your homosexual perversions.

Sincerely,
Larry Davis

Keith said...

May I suggest that you improve your social skills and manners before applying for another job?

I've got the address of "The Mugabe Charm School" in Zimbabwe if you are interested. I'm sure that all the bloggers and personnel officers that you constantly harass would have a whip round for your one-way ticket to Africa.

Julian Meteor said...

LOL Keith!!!!!!

Thanks for the offer but I wouldn't be able to afford the return ticket!!!! I have no money derrrr!!! lmao

Keith said...

Come back? Whatever gave you that idea?
