Her: This is Alice from careerbuilder.com. I need to speak to the person in charge of your hiring.
Me: What do you need, exactly?
Her: I need to speak to the person in charge of your hiring to tell him or her about the products and services we offer.
Me: We are not interested. Please put us on the "do not call" list.
Her: Can I ask why you are not interested?
Me: No. We just aren't. Please put us on the "do not call" list.
Her: Well, ma'am, who would it be that I could talk to about hiring in the future?
Me: No one. Because you are putting us on the "do not call" list, remember?
Her: *sigh* O-kaaaay. Thanks for your help.
Seriously people! I only have a small problem with you calling as long as you are polite and respectful and immediately responsive when I tell you not to call back. I have a huge problem when you think you are all hot stuff, like this lady, and figure that you can weasel more information out of me just because you are more well-spoken than the average telemarketer and I must just be a lowly receptionist who has been given a charge not to let telemarketers disturb the higher-ups but is incapable of making a decision about whether my company needs what you are selling.
Well, guess what sistah, unbeknownst to you, you did reach the person in charge of hiring and she told you in no uncertain terms to stuff it. And as the person in charge of hiring (and lady, if you really wanted to impress you might use a more professional term like "HR Specialist"... just a thought) I want to let you know that we will never, ever, ever use careerbuilder.com. Ever.
And no, you cannot ask why.
