Online Job Sites

I signed up to a recruitment site recently. You know, you give them your details, tell them what sort of job you’re looking for and they send you details of suitable jobs. Well, that’s the way it is supposed to work.

The way it actually works is that they send me totally unsuitable jobs. There are plenty of jobs for HGV drivers in Walsall. The only trouble is that I don’t have an HGV licence and I live at the other end of the country. Nearer to home, there are plenty of jobs for financial analysts, but I’m not a financial analyst.

More bizarrely, they sent me details of a job as a DJ for a gay, black radio station – or, rather, I imagine they mean a radio station for gay black people. Do they know something I don’t? As far as I am aware, I’m white and heterosexual and, with some exceptions, my favourite music isn’t much more recent than Handel.
