Almost Suicidal in Cypress, Texas

so my resume has present and recent work experience..and then I have previous work experience it filled up the 2nd page nicely and gave me a chance to get some great keywords in there. It's temp stuff and volunteer stuff. Adjunct, interim, that kind of thing.

So the HR office calls and wants dates and hours and pay.

None of these positions appear on the actual app I filled out, only on my attached resume. Is that odd?

So, someone actually read your resume? I might find that interesting...

But, if they don't know the definition of "volunteer" and want pay rates, is there a brain between the people at the company?

I sort of wondered that myself, John. HR professionals, probably just following policy, but maybe that 's a policy they need to get a committee working on! Ha!

Alas, nobody want to hear about what's wrong, let alone fix it!

My sister once had to "prove" that she once worked for a bank that went belly up. Luckily, both of us have all our paystubs going back for over a decade.

Yeah, today save everything.
