We've all been through the painful ordeal of looking for employment. It's almost an art and some, maybe most, aren't very good at it. I had a boss once that said if he gets 100 applications for a job opening, He'll filter out all but 3 that really stand out and go from there.


I once applied for a radio job and sent a turkey gizzard in a jar and labeled it "Baxter's Left Nut. For the complete set call XXX-XXXX".  I got a call the next day and a job offer.

I also once interviewed a guy from Wisconsin and wanted to hire him.  I called him and offered him the job and he turned it down. Seems he was on probation for arson and wasn't allowed to leave the state.
