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?
