As you know, I've been unemployed for almost 6 months now and have been actively seeking a new job. About a month ago I checked out the Greater Boston Food Bank to see if they had any jobs available and lo-and-behold they did! They are looking for a Member Service Assistant and it's the perfect position for me and my skill set and not only that, it supports a VERY important cause. Feeding those in need. If you're a long time reader, you know that volunteering is an important part of my life and of course, so is food. I can't imagine a better place to work. I submitted my resume and cover letter on January 20th and heard nothing back. I figured they filled the position. Today I was on Craigslist and saw a listing for the position again! I checked their website and the position is still listed there as well. So I sent along my resume and cover letter. I really want this job. I know I'd not only love it, but I'd be a great addition to the team.
I have been following them on Twitter @Gr8BosFoodBank and just posted a tweet letting them know that I want this job!! I've never done anything like this before, but right now I'm launching a campaign to get noticed. I want them to know how important this is to me. This is not just another resume submitted by a job seeker. This is my passion. Do you think I'd be a great asset to the Greater Boston Food Bank team?? Here's how you can help! Follow @Gr8BosFoodBank on Twitter and then send them a tweet letting them now that they should hire me! Include me in the message @MySugarAndSpice (and follow me if you're not already!!). I don't know if this will work, but what have I got to lose, right? I really appreciate your help!!!
