You know I've been job hunting and I've told you how different job hunting is now a days. Everything is on line. Well, I am SO SICK of every single insurance company sending me spam e mail wanting to hire me as an insurance salesman. What could they possibly be reading in my resume that would make them think I am in any way interested in selling insurance?
The next thing I've noticed is a really sneaky, and I think so wrong thing they are doing. They send you e mails saying they've found a job in your area that you qualify for. You read it and think "Well, this sounds like a good job. This sounds like one I could do." So you click on the link and apply and fill out all the information and upload your resume. Then you're taken to another page that says there's one final step you need to take to submit your application - you have to call this number so they can verify information. So you call the number and they ask you a few things that you've already answered in the application process - how them asking you and you telling them the same thing you already wrote in the application verifies anything is mystifying. Then they ask you if you want to continue further education - AHA! This is the thing - they want to offer you financing on furthering your education! There never was any job and they just wasted a bunch of your time! It's infuriating!
okay, rant over - I feel a teeny bit better.
Now today's card is for the Twisted Sister Challenge on Splitcoast Stampers. We were supposed to make a baseball themed card using our favorite teams colors. Well, I don't have a favorite team, but I went with the Kansas City Royals because none of the teams have lavender, and blue is second best.
I did have a great baseball image though! This is Sorrowful Slugger from Squigglefly.
Once it was colored (I used Copic markers and chalk for the sky and grass) I thought and thought about what kind of sentiment to use on it. I finally came up with the "So, you had a bad day " for the front and I made it look like the baseball ball in the card by sponging some red on it. and it made me think of the bad days I've had recently striking out in the new job department, so I made this as a little encouragement card. Here's the inside
Wishing every one of you a great day and hope you keep swinging that bat! Thanks for listening - and looking!
