A first in a long time, and a first… ever?

It’s been at least 3 months, but probably longer, since I’ve actually been able to say I’ve successfully found at least a job to apply for, even if I don’t end up landing it. It’s been longer since I’ve found one that on paper actually varifies I did, in fact, apply for work–useful when dealing with second career folks. I got one of these last night.

James,

This email is to confirm that we have received the application that you recently submitted on our website for the CUSTOMER INTERACTION REPRESENTATIVE position. Your information has been entered in our system and we will review it at the next earliest opportunity.

Yay for automated form letter confirmation thinggies. Yay for actually receiving one for the first time since, I think, the last time I applied for a job at Rogers–who, by the way, still hasn’t called me back more than once since I started applying there. Oh, yeah, and yay for this.

You also might want to bookmark our website or subscribe to our RSS feed, as positions we add in the near future may also be of interest to you.

Hang on. An employer who actually offers RSS feeds of job postings? For serious? Bonus. Now, let’s talk pay and benefits and we’ll go from there. Hey, I may not actually land this job, but considering how long it’s been since I actually found one to apply for–and the fact this is the only company that’s actually using current-ish technology to advertise jobs (selectively using Twitter doesn’t count, Rogers), I’ll take it. Now let’s see if they offer it.
