Job Seeker Advice

I could tell the caller was nervous when he left a voicemail on my phone. He said he was calling to see if we were hiring, and he left a
phone number. Never did say his name, though. Who should I ask for when calling?
If you're looking for work-
1) Leave a name to go with the phone number if you leave a message.
2) Do give your name if somebody answers. If you won't tell me who you are, I'm going to think you have something to hide.
3) If you write a resume, run it through a spell checker before you send it out. I will read it, and as it is probably the only thing I've seen that you've created, I will use it to gauge the quality of your work. This can be circumvented by showing up with samples of parts, but not if you can't spell machinist.
4) If you make an appointment for an interview, SHOW UP. If you don't show up, I'll think you don't want a job here.
Anybody care to add to the list? It's been a while since we did this.
Later,
Charlie

In a strange turn of events... I've found MOST employers around here put out offers for employment with NO frik'n company name. Just the usual "We need these qualification from you..." then a phone number or email with no real contact info. Talk about awkward. A shop that is proud of its reputation would gladly post its name. Even worse though is trying to get the name of the prospective employer from any headhunter (they call me a lot). They are tight with that info to protect their interests ($). Funny part is, I can guess who it is 95% of the time when talking to a headhunter (or reading an ad) just by its wording and location. Guess I've been around! <g>
