"Thanks Sandra. It's nice to get attention but I seriously have 0 interest in insurance, financial advising or anything of the like. On a positive note, I have an interview tomorrow with a marketing firm! Sweet."

"Don't take it personally Louis.  The Insurance recruiters and the call center recruiters work the boards like locusts.  Any resume that comes on there unless they are in the over 60 age group gets an interview request from them. …"

Louis Bina commented on Dean Da Costa's blog post 'Helping those looking for work!!!!!!!!! Part 2'
"This is pretty much what I was referring to when I posted my most recent article. Search optimized resumes only make the recruiters do more work than is necessary. These types of tips falsely represent the candidate, or at least over-exaggerate…"
