I know I'm trying to get my own business started -- Royal Document Review -- but I'm still in need of some temp work. Something to get me a little cash and pay my bills instead of just draining away my savings. And since I've been laid off, I've interviewed with four recruiters/head hunters, and I've sent my resume to countless others.
So, is it really asking for too damn much for them to acknowledge my fucking existence? Seriously, is that asking for too much for at least one to acknowledge me? Literary agents are supposed to be possible to contact once they've taken you on as a client, but as someone who actually had an agent for a year before firing him, I can confidently state that it's easier to get one of those bastards to return a phone call or e-mail than it is to get a head hunter/recruiter to return a phone call or e-mail.
It's as if, after they meet with you, you no longer exist.
But damn it, to quote the Elephant Man, I'm a human being. I want one of those bastards to acknowledge me for once.
