Well, I'm still doing it...
I've applied for quite a few in the last week, but it's a waiting game innit?
(, Mon 27 Feb 2012, 20:09, Reply)
Unfortunately it is and the waiting is one of the worst aspects of the whole experience.
Let me know if there is anything I can do to help.
(, Mon 27 Feb 2012, 20:12, Reply)
It's a pain in the arse, frankly.
As is the whole not hearing anything at all. Got another couple of applications to finish tomorrow, plus I saw something today that is kind of in my old line of work but which would involve a 90 minute drive each way minimum. I shall chew over the job description again tomorrow. The employer isn't the best organisation to work for either, from professional experience.
(, Mon 27 Feb 2012, 20:16, Reply)
What I found was phoning the recruiter up before applying helped.
I did this to get the job I've just started. I think it made more of an impact than a standard application.

I called and said, seen the vacancy, wanted to have a quick chat before I applied so I didn't waste anyone's time, shall I take a couple of minutes to tell you a bit about my background and then you can tell me if you think it's worth my applying.

I think the recruiter remembered me more as a result when they saw my completed application.

Not hearing anything at all is a fucking pain, as you get your hopes up short term and then get more fucked off after a while of not hearing than you would of done if you'd had an acknowledgement.
(, Mon 27 Feb 2012, 20:28, Reply)
I emailed an employer before applying a couple of weeks back.
The job was as a copywriter for a housing association and they specified a degree in marketing / PR - which I don't have. However, I do have a lot of experience in writing corporate guidance and managed a PR contract in a previous job, including writing a lot of press releases and newsletters, so they said they'd be happy to accept an application.

I may take this approach more often.
(, Mon 27 Feb 2012, 20:36, Reply)
Phoning may be better. More personal and more memorable?

(, Mon 27 Feb 2012, 20:40, Reply)
In this case there wasn't a 'phone number on the ad.
But yeah, if there's an opportunity to ring then I will.
(, Mon 27 Feb 2012, 20:48, Reply)
To get my new job I emailed them a link to my catalogue modelling portfolio beforehand.
The interview was in November and so I had a moustache. They mentioned the 'moustache for charity', so I kept a straight face and told them no, this is the way I look.

I think that's what swung it for me.

I reckon advances in medican will counter the fact that I live such an unhealthy lifestyle.
Dad had a little expresion that I'll haunt me, that he told me after his first heart attack, was "I wasn't made for old bones, but I ain't going anywhere yet". Like father, like son. Mind-you, Ma's lot reach their late 80s, so hopefully that'll get me a few extra years.

It's all part of the balance, I don't plan on getting the deposit back when the burry me.
