I confess I was a dewey-eyed optimist when I signed on with you. Hopeful and open to an infinite number of wonderful possibilities career-wise, I dipped my toe in the pool and gave you some of my information, like email address and my professional credentials. You promised lots of exciting professional prospects were on the way. For many moons I searched and finally started to land many interviews in the place out west I longed to move from Dallas. Yes, I went to many interviews, none of which were remotely connected with my contact through careerbuilder.com.
All the while, I kept receiving emails promising exciting new job prospects in the remote burg to which I had moved. I'd open the email only to find it offered additional training for these non-existent jobs. A year ago, I landed a much more satisfying job and the search for other employment has ceased. Alas, the same can not be said of your sad, lying emails.
Tell the truth: you don't know of a single, viable professional prospect in that other town because there are none. It's a small place with a shrinking population because people are moving (get this-- it's an important point here--) to where the melon-farming jobs are to be found.
Call me cynical, but I suspect your true raison d'etre is to generate more students for vocational and diploma-mill type training ventures. I don't believe you actually help most people who sign up with you. True, there may even be an occasional story of someone made good because of careerbuilder.com, but I have a hard time believing that is remotely typical.
You probably won't even know that I've instructed my email to automatically spirit your emails into my junk bin for periodic automatic disposal. I won't know either, because from this moment forward, I won't be thinking of you at all.
Have a nice life,
your former sucker Phlegmmy
