I guess I've had my resume posted on the Gtown alumni job search site - had totally forgotten about it. Don't even know how current it is! But tonight upon checking my email, I had a message from someone who's looking to fill a position, and he singled me out and personally sent me the description and application. Crazy!!
I seriously didn't believe those types of things worked. Do recruiters actually wade through tons of online postings to locate potential candidates? No!
Granted, I'm very happy where I am now. The summer transition to the new job went very well. I work with GREAT people, and we do good work. I'm not looking to change. But when I'm totally broke (pasta and PBJ, anyone?), a potential $9000 raise sounds rather lovely.
