Should You Pay Attention to the Customer Service of a "Possible" Employer?

A blog by the name of No Regrets, but plenty of memories... poses an excellent point. (Be sure to visit and read all the great posts!) When you are looking for employment, shouldn't the employer acknowledge receipt of your resume?

Several of my friends are currently looking for employment. One of them is recently divorced, another's hours have been cut in half due to downsizing and the other has had her job eliminated due to poor enrollment! They all have the same complaint. They are actively looking for employment and send resumes to different employment possitions they qualify for. After that, they wait and wait ...and wait some more. They don't receive a call, email or letter stating that their resume was received, filed or being considered at all.

The fact that you are looking for employment with a company should be enough for them to treat you with respect. After all, just like the blogger states on her post, being employed by a company is beneficial to both parties. They are looking for certain skill sets and you are offering those skills for a monetary exchange. Right?

Read the post and tell me what you think. Being ignored by a company you are seeking employment with is a red flag. If they don't respect future employees, do you expect their customer service to be any better?...

Makes you think huh!?!

Thanks for your great post!

I was looking for work for several years and was lucky enough to get on a course run by an independant job agency. it was explained to us that employers are overwhelmed by, often unsolicited, job applications. The best thing is to enclose a stamped addressed envelope or phone to confirm they got the letter a few days after. I know from experiance that when you are looking for work, job applications are an expensive item

Thanks for your listings of ways to make money. There is one other I would like to mention. It is totally 100% FREE to join and operate. I have been a member since 2005 and I have a downline of 123 at this time. The money is not steady yet, but it helps. I have made over $50.00 per month on a relatively regular basis. All one does is sign up and let it go. It really takes care of itself. Anyone interested, e-mail me at and I will give you the web address. Thanks, and please keep up the good work! ~Bill A
