Well THAT was discouraging

I woke up and did my usual job search stuff. This time I found a few jobs for which I hadn't applied and did so. In one case there was a job where the requirements matched my resume and there was a phone number attached, so I called it.

The woman said it was unlikely my resume would be forwarded to the client because they'd already sent three, and because I didn't have any wireless experience (it didn't ask for it in the description!). She said they'd already sorted through thousands of resumes. Ugh.

I wish companies would post all their requirements so I wouldn't waste my time applying for jobs for which I'm not "qualified."
