Short vent!!!

Sorry but... For this one job, I have just spent 4 hours preparing a 6-page CV, a 2-page application, a 3-page outline of relevance to criteria, got right through about 16 pages of online form
rehashing the same info for the Seek database version of this particular application and the thing won't go through because the Company name field jammed (it's blank and not accepting info + the search link is broken). Calmly I've left three phone messages for the contact person, and an urgent email to the Seek Help desk. Yes I saved the draft, but where is it? I have two user names from 2006 and a reset password!! No alternative means to submit this thing (they don't accept email submissions)... no-one's answering their phone, I haven't had lunch yet, I need a coffee and this is not even funny!! Grrrr... hahaha ... sorry about that...

  1. Ahhh yes... The joys of applications. I have found that sometimes it is more work to apply for a job than it is to keep one!
