Response from Volt (a temp agency)

Alicia,

I got your email and voice-mail message. You have had allot of jobs with not much tenure at any one place. This would create a concern for my clients. I am sorry but I am unable to help you in your job search at this time. Best of luck in your search.


First, you spelled my name wrong.
Second, look at the cities where these jobs have been held. That means I moved.
Third, "allot" is not the same as "a lot".
Fourth, there should be a comma after "I am sorry".

Any others to add on?

Since they clearly aren't interested, I would write a cover letter telling them that you found their test very interesting and creative! That you have done the corrections needed, and feel you did well on it. That you hope to hear from them soon on the status of your test scores, and hope that your scores are high enough to be placed with one of their client firms.

Seriously.

And since when do temp agencies care how many jobs you had? Never bothered the agencies I worked for, and never once did a client of an agency (I was registered with many at the same time) ask about other jobs. They EXPECT temps to flit from job to job.

Also correct the informal use of your first name, and write it out in perfect formal business letter format. Both your cover letter, and their 'corrected' letter.

That is an excellent idea. It would be even better to give it to her supervisor.

Don't forget, when sending it to the supervisor, to cc: it to her, and perhaps to yourself, or file, or whatever. Make it as terribly formal as you can.

Give me enough peace and quiet, and I can come up with some decent material. ;)

Why We Cite: Starchy Tuber
Okay, let me get this straight: They're a temp agency, and they're concerned about the fact that you haven't stayed at your jobs for a very long time.

That would be like if I wanted to be a gay male prostitute, and the booking agency where I applied said, "Sorry, Matt, but you've slept with allot [sic] of men, and this would be a concern for our clients." Of course, that's totally hypothetical. I've never slept with any men--nor do I have any interest in it. I'm saving myself for you.

Correct all of the grammar and ask if you can be official grammar corrector for the temp agency.

I second everyone else's comments and would also like to add that if the stupid temp agency did their stupid job and actually placed you in position that matched your skills, I'm sure you would be willing to stay and the employer would want to keep you. Duh. Temp hiring 101.

I hope you find something new. *hugs*

You know, it's hard enough getting rejected for work. The only think that makes it more difficult is when the person doing the rejecting is clearly a COMPLETE FUCKING IDIOT. You want to say "Hey, you know what? Give me YOUR job. I can do it a million times better than you, because for one, I actually KNOW THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE."

*sigh*

One line:

"I believe you are the only concern for your clients."
