I used CareerBuilder like ONCE, and now I get weekly emails of all the jobs out there that CB has matched with my personality.
And, probably given the state of the economy, and the fact that CareerBuilder is one of the most visited sites next to Google and this blog, they've revamped their format to include not only how many people have applied for the job listing, but also whether or not a job is a "good match" for you. I believe they base this information on...nothing.
This week's job matches were especially hilarious.
(Reminder: I am a writer.)
VERY GOOD MATCH:
• Family Nurse Practitioner
(Okay, my twenties were a fun and crazy time, but I highly doubt I drank so much I forgot that I went to Nursing School or learned to love the sight of blood)
• Program Director – Mortuary Science
(I'm bad at anything that has the word 'science' in it...especially when it has to do with dead bodies)
• Parts Counterperson – Branch Toyota
(Apparently CareerBuilder thinks I'm a dude)
• Ophthalmic Technician
(I don't even know what this IS...)
• Morning News Anchor
(okay, even though I'm not qualified for this position, I think it's trés cool)
• VP of Sales
(Sales of what?)
And my favorite:
• School Human Resources Director
(I'm the most un-human resources person there is...i have no filter...i can't be nice to people I don't like...and i'm not crazy about kids)
• Blogger Freelance Writer
