It's no wonder people are unemployed...

...they don't know how to apply for jobs.

This post on MegNut.com should be read by anybody considering applying for a job. Some of the stuff seems obvious, but it's the little things in your job hunts that matter. But don't do things like this (this was in response to a Craig's List posting for a software/hardware engineer)...from the post:

Here are some of the things I've received to date in response to my posting (note: posting says attachments will not be read, application requires an essay, company consists of two people):

  • Blank emails with Microsoft Word resumes attached
  • A cover letter beginning, "Dear Richard"
  • Letters beginning, "Dear Sir/Madam"
  • Another saying, "Dear Human Resource Manager"
  • a response to my, "advertisement...for the UI Developer"

    Really, folks. When you do stuff like this, unemployment is just going to continue to rise.
