last week i posted an opening for my current position, as i was in negotiations with my (now) new employer for a part time position in close proximity to my new home (something i had been working towards for a while). i posted this position, prior to notifying my current employer, when i was in the final phase of bonus negotiations and therefore listed identifying (but realistically unnecessary) information in the most vague manner possible. i posted in a myriad of locations; one being craigslist – as i have done before with previous positions and have received qualified candidates for a measly $25.00. today, i received this email in response to this posting: subject: 08212014 executive assistant position to whom it may concern, if you want any qualified applicants (as myself) to take you seriously, then you would name the company in the ad. craigslist is a shady way to advertise for c-level positions in the first place. the least you could do is name the company to make one feel like they are not going to get scammed (which is what i find most happens with an ad like this on craigslist). just trying to help and good luck, you'll need it to get someone qualified! sincerely, cuntface mccunterson ph | 666.666.6666 "don't tell me the sky's the limit when there are footprints on the moon!" my initial reaction was to fire back a snide email to this bitch stating that the only thing she was qualified for was a kick to the cunt but i have, so far, managed to refrain. i just stared at the screen for what felt like an eternity waiting for a pop up ad or something to tell me i am being trolled. i could not believe that some “applicant” would take the time out of their unemployed day, in between watching maury and eating funyuns, to reply to my posting and scold me. focus: have you ever received something in a professional or personal setting that was so inappropriately brazen that you were, literally, at a loss for words? did you ever find the words? alt focus: help me respond to this before i e-stalk her and things gets out of hand.
