how long should interview shoes wait between sending in her CV and beautifully crafted covering letter to recruitment agent and getting on the phone to query said agent’s lack of response?

it has, after all, been three days

the silence is a knowing one; it means

interview shoes, your application is utterly without merit

so much might be true. interview shoes does not want to waste anyone’s time – least of all her own.

would not waste time applying for a job that involved juggling, or fixing things on walls straight, or working with dogs.

the agent might be on holiday. or unwell. or in a meeting for the third day running… these agents are busy, busy, busy.

but what do you bet he’s not?


email from recruitment agent this morning asking for a photo of interview shoes to brighten his office wall.

we never meet…

he complains.

interview shoes considers his offer,

the collage of curled up photos on his wall,

the smiles that never slip.


a shot of my shoes – maybe he’d like that.

but no. then again not.

thanks for asking anyhow.

just had an email from a recruitment agency:

…killed creative staff required.

interview shoes thinks she’ll give that opportunity a miss.

thanks anyway.
