Has anyone ever been contacted by, interviewed with or was offered a job with either of these companies and said they had seen your resume on CareerBuilder (in my case is true, my resume is on CareerBuilder. They appear to a legitimate company or at least appear legit with a google search. I am not so sure that recruiter / manager are from this company. They have not asked me for money, or filled out any tax or direct deposit information. The positions that were available was for data entry, Administrative Assistant etc...
My boyfriend is the associate director at a small gallery owned by a rich person. He started not too long ago and is curating a show with a large group of artists, but he hasn’t talked to his boss (the owner) about budget for the show yet(install, shipping), because she is not there at the gallery very much. When I asked my boyfriend what if she doesn’t want to commit to the cost of the show? He just said “I don’t mind if I have to pay a few hundred dollars out of my own pocket.” Which I think is absolutely a principle that no employees should pay for directly work related costs out of their own pockets. So we got into a big fight. His argument is: if this show goes well it will be good for his career.
He is full time, salary based, no commissions.
Am I wrong in this argument?
I applied to a job through indeed, which took me to their website. I completed the first part of the application, which sent my contact information to them. I received an email shortly afterwards saying to complete my profile, but the link was broken. I decided I would revisit it in a few days when I had a chance to go a deeper dive on my PC (rather than my phone). In the meantime, they called me about the job and got me through the preliminary process. I mentioned that the link was expired but she told me not to worry and that they had my contact info. Well I was on my PC and decided to try to figure out how to get into my profile, and I was successful. I figured, since I'm here I might as well fill out the rest of the missing information in case they do communication through this portal. The moment I completed everything it said that it sent the application!! By finishing the information it formally submitted the application a second time. I am MORTIFIED! Any advice on how to smoothly recover from this and explain to them that I am not dumb, I just wanted to be thorough? #advice #application #followup
