A Final Note
We know what it’s like to look for a job. Not a lot of fun and a lot of rejection. But, please don’t barrage us with your phone calls. In return, we’ll make sure that each applicant receives word about whether we think it’s a good fit for you and us.
But wait, there’s more. Do you have over 5 years’ of work experience? Are you at a management level or higher, earning over $40,000 annually? Have you been out of college over 3 years? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you should re-read the job description and requirements. Why are you applying for this entry level position? Be realistic. You wouldn’t be happy and it’s not a good fit for us. Save us both the aggravation of applying.
