This was sent to me by an anonymous job seeker. Apparently he had seen one too many staffing commercials on YouTube and didn’t understand why the application process seemed to be so much work for him.
He said he wanted a way to write an open letter to the staffing industry to get their act together, but couldn’t think of one — so he sent it to me. I thought he had some decent points, so…
He also included this funny little picture (above-right).

Dear staffing video telling me to call you for your ASAP available position and speak to your receptionist,
So I watched your video, but I still sit here, empty-handed. Now what? I would love to click and follow through where I am led to your website and I can upload my resume, or at the very least fill out an application.
I would also like the opportunity to record my own video resume in a program that automatically puts a backdrop behind me and I can take as many retakes as I need to be satisfied with my representation of myself.
I want all of this done prior to my in-person interview. I don’t have a “job”, but finding one is and my time is precious.
I understand you have an immediate need. I have an immediate need for employment so let’s make this process more concise and free of error.
I will call you because I am unemployed but I won’t like that you ask me to fax or drop in a copy of my resume immediately.
I will not like that you make me come in for one or two interviews with your office, then one- two – three interviews with each company that has a position I might be right for.
I have the internet, webcam, a fax machine, scanner, and printer. Why do you make me come in so often? Why isn’t the process easily done from my smart phone?
