Job Searches, cont.

Now that the rush of 1st Quarter hiring is over with most companies, the amount of positions available for me to apply to has dropped considerably.  I did, however, find a couple last week to apply to and today comes another first in job interview methods.  The pre-screen e-mail.  Now, screen phone interviews and screen live interviews I've experienced.  But this is definitely my first pre-screen e-mail attachment:

So, I filled it out and sent it back over, hopefully resulting a real life interview.  Although, I have to say, I didn't really mind the e-mail screen.  I feel more relaxed writing and I prefer not having to get all gussied up and drive out somewhere if they're just not going to hire me anyway.  I imagine they feel the same.


  1. Interesting - is this just to apply for the position, or does this come after they've received your application but before the interview? In any case, good luck! And I totally agree - I am far more relaxed trying to put my "best self" forward in writing, and the gussying up thing is just too exhausting to do for no good reason.

  2. After they got the resume, but before they actually set up an interview? It's peculiar, but thank you for the luck!!
