So, seeking a new direction in my career, I decided to put out my resume and start applying to things that sounded interesting. I already have a job that pays the bills, so I'm wasn't searching too
hard, but I have just been fishing around on careerbuilder.com for a few months to see what hooks.
On a whim, I sent my resume to what sounded like an interesting entry-level account manager position at what appears to be a brand/design/marketing firm. Eh, I thought. The listing said they required a sense of humor, which of course I have in spades.
So I applied and thought nothing of it.
I received a call the very next day
about how they were very interested in my resume. The resume of a p.e. teacher, with absolutely no background in marketing, branding or design.
This, in a terribly shitty job market (for careers, anyway), took me back a second. I have an interview next week, but I'm getting a weird feeling about this.
An account manager
position, something I am hilariously underqualified for, and they are excited about a p.e. teacher's resume. Possibly the exact opposite of account manager. If you want to see the website, pm me, but it weirds me out too. A lot of stock photos and a rather vague description of what they actually do. And I can't find anything else about them anywhere on Google.
Is this...is this standard procedure for a marketing firm? No list of clients on their website, no actual photos. Calling hugely underqualified individuals for what sounds like a rather important position?
I dunno, am I being paranoid? Just feels weird to me. My teaching career has made me pretty good at sifting through bullshit, and I'm just getting all kinds of red flags here.
