Backblog: September 8th, 2007. Who are these people?

Why is it that every time there I get a bite while fishing with my online resume, it's always, always for sales and customer service? Do these people even read my resume any farther than the headline? Do any employers?

Don't get me wrong, I would love to have hits from companies looking for a writer, game designer, or recluse millionaire (I think that I'm best suited for that last job - at least that's where my interests lay).

One would think that if the company wanted to hire me for customer service and/or sales that once they saw the part on my resume that said specifically "I am not looking for a customer service or sales position," that they would at least NOT MENTION IT IN THE E-MAIL.

I just don't know. It's food for thought.
