Dear Possible Employers

Posted on Tue, May 17, 2011 at 11:22 AM

I've been checking around to try to find a job for about a month now, going from place to place, dropping off resumes, mostly sending stuff through the online job market. But wouldn't you think that when a sign on a storefront says 'now hiring' they in fact are hiring, but no! That's not the case. I'm pointing to you, Quinpool Road, and the slew of stores that tote these lies. Especially since one of you just laid folks off. When people are out looking for jobs, especially minimum wage jobs they need to work quickly and shouldn't have to spend half a day filling out that crazily tedious application when there's no possibility of employment. Sure, you're keeping their resumes for 6 months but let's face it, you're probably not going to look at those 6 month old resumes and if you do how is it relevant to someone who's looking for minimum wage work right now? Just put out those signs when you're actually looking for people and stop wasting our time, your window space, and the hopes and dreams of us kids in town. —Annoyed and Not Employed
