Web Content Coordinator (1)

A corporate job with variety... this time I'm going to speak to the recruitment agency contact person first. I've left a voicemail message. When he rings back, I'll ask:
  • Is the position still available (advertised last week!)
  • Where is the job located?
  • Can you give me more information about the position?
  • Do you have a position description you can email me?
I suppose recuitment agencies have different ways of operating. Any suggestions on whether it's best to use the 'Apply Now' function (to show you can!) or to submit via email with a more personalised (quirky?) approach? Comment here, or vote in the poll on the right panel. Feel free to post a joke in the comments box for fun : )


  1. Talking to myself again! Second thoughts. Instead of waiting for the return call, I googled the position, found it's in North Melbourne (I've posted the link - see jobsjobsjobs), guess it's still available or it would be removed from the site, figuring it's a short-term contract anyway and I don't want to spend a week on it, so tweaked my CV and previous letter of application, shot them off via the 'Apply Now' link... I'm guessing the pay should be approx $70K as it's corporate work. I'll let you know! Feel free to add remarks : )

  2. Tue 8 March - Email received. Unsuccessful.
