Now that I’ve unsubscribed from the dozens of job sites I was involved with, my e-mail traffic has slowed to a trickle. The only people I ever hear from anymore are Nigerian princess wanting to invest “the sum of $8.5 million US dollars on properties in your country.” If I can help, I should write the prince back at his secure excite.com e-mail address.
It’s a bit depressing when you realize that the ego-boosting Inbox (27) I would see each morning was far and away created by automated bots with little to no loyalty to me, nor with any interest in continuing a fulfilling relationship now that the job search is over. Why, Monster.com, have you forsaken me? Didn’t we have good times? Weren’t we always there for one another? I haven’t changed, I’m still the same guy you used to write to almost every day. Why have you let money come between us?!
sigh Some things just weren’t meant to be.
Luckily, Orbitz and I still have a pretty good thing going…
