How cruel is this? I’m pasting a letter I received with the subject line “I tried to call you” (which in and of itself). I have no qualms about identifying the sender — who deserves no quarter for preying on the hopes of someone looking for a job — just in case any of you out there receive a similar message.

Now, I ain’t click on any of those links.
I don’t know how his boss would have put my resume on his desk since I don’t have any “past experience in account management, customer service, sales, and management.”
What they could have used was a proofreader.
So thanks a lot, Peter Rukis, but I’ll pass.
