    One thing to watch out for, especially if you are looking on online sites like Monster, are scams. Never apply for a job where they want you to send money or bank account details as part of the application. You should only give bank details either to get your benefits or once you are hired at a new job to get paid. Also most of the 'work at home' jobs are scams. If you feel tempted by one, Google the company involved to see what others have said about them.

    People dumb enough to fall for that deserve to have their money stolen.

    Tunick,

    Be glad you live in the US rather than Britain. I noticed you got your job at Wal-Mart right out of high school. In the UK, the job you get after high school is the one you retire from 50 years later. There's little upward mobility in the UK job-wise.

    Aye. And do not use that Darth AOL email. Use another email account that doesn't advertise that you're a SW geek. :p

    Oh wow I didn't even notice that. Have you been using that e-mail for the past two months?? Seriously man, you need a proper e-mail address when applying to places.

    It is not a hindrance for goodness sake... it's good enough for my bank, the government, and sorts of other important functions.

    But not to attract employers, for fraks sake. Open a Gmail account without any SW references in it.

    It is. I've seen people reject work solicits because the e-mail address was ridiculous.

    Hell, I've done it myself.

    Yes....places that aren't looking to hire you. :p

    I'll cut you a little bit of slack as it's probably been a long time since you've done this, but it's really one of the most basic things you should know about job searching.

    At the very least, it wouldn't hurt to get a new email account. It is free anyway.

    If there are 300 people with equal qualifications, the guy with the devil666@ address (real case) was the first to go.

    Or you think you're that amazingly good that small details like your neckbeard or your e-mail address are inconsequential? Get real.

    Yeah, change the email address.

    Just use your name, like armentunick@ gmail.com or something like that.

    I agree with all the above, my professional and "grown up" email is my name on a gmail account.

    Everything else uses fatburt

    Once I get an interview, I'm trimming or shaving off the beard. Duh. Well, when I set up my new e-mail (since apparently IT'S THE MOST IMPORTANT THING EVER), I'm sticking with AOL...why switch to G-Mail? :p

    In a perfect world it shouldn't matter all that much but the reality is it does. You can't be stubborn about these things.

    Open up a gmail email account. That email address is the first thing they see on your resume. Trust me, they will see Darth, and toss your resume to the side. You want A.Tunick@gmail, or something like that... something professional looking. Trust me. It's worth your while to change that email address. Seriously... it takes only a few minutes.
