Not Just A Job.

Update 2/18: I just checked my twitter this morning and they heard us!! THANK YOU to all of you who tweeted on my behalf, you people are amazing!! The person that runs the GBFB Twitter has forwarded my message to HR. Hopefully I'll get a call soon. THANKS AGAIN!

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!!!
