Dear job market: you need to fuck off now.

On the bright side, I wasn’t left chasing this chick for upwards of a month like I have been other times. On the not so bright side, though…

Good Afternoon,

Unfortunately we have just received word that our client has filled the allotted unilingual English opportunities with them and will only be considering bilingual French and English or unilingual French candidates going forward.

Any candidates who have already been interviewed with Bell will still be in consideration however those who are pending resume review or interviews with our office will not be able to be considered further.

You will remain in our pool of qualified technical representatives and we will continue to consider you for future opportunities with our other clients.

Please keep an eye on our website; for future opportunities and be sure to check JobBank, Workopolis and Monster and to apply with other agencies as well.

If you have any questions please let me know.

Well, I guess that just leaves me with only one option. Who on that side of the border wants to put up with me for a couple weeks?

  1. Ever thought that it isn’t so much the job market as it is your location? Say what you will about the US and the economy, I have 3 job offers at the moment. This is said with no boasting in mind as it is to make it known that things are still flowing in some parts. Get your ass to your girlfriend’s and enjoy yourselves.

    1. I don’t doubt that location might have something to do with it. At the same time, I’m in the national capital region up here. Which means there *should* be both private sector and government sector jobs coming out the wazu. There be not. Of course, I’m also probably in a very different field than you’re looking to get into, which may also have something to do with it. Although, chances are pretty good if this supposed “slow down” economy-wise is anything like even the most optimistic folks are saying, it may be just that it hasn’t caught up to you folks yet. I know of several places in both Canada and the US where layoffs etc are going left, right and center.

    2. Where do you live? Maybe we both should move there once I finish massage school. LOL!
