Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I'm looking for a new job. I updated my resume and re-posted it on Monster (it's been a few years since I went through this process) with the intention to just check in every day and apply to whatever looks good -- nothing too aggressive. Since then I've gotten a few e-mails from companies interested in talking to me about positions I didn't apply for.
These aren't "LOL HI WE'RE A STAFFING AGENCY DO YOU WANT TO WORK FOR 6 WEEKS FOR AN UNKNOWN COMPANY" e-mails; most of them seem to imply that there's a legitimate job offer in store. The thing is, while I'm qualified for these positions and would like the company to know that I'm interested in future offers, I don't want to actually spend the time on the phone responding to every single one. I'd like to know how I can reply to these e-mails to get this across without giving them the impression that I'm just completely blowing them off.
How should I word a reply? Is a reply even necessary? Or should I just man up and call them back to avoid limiting my future options?
