The best way to ensure you're NOT hired is to call me. The ad on Craigslist was clear: send me your resume, tell me a little bit about yourself, don't call. This is the first test -- if you can't follow that direction, in my experience, you won't follow other, more critical directions.
I'm sorry if that sounds harsh, but this is the first line of quality control.
While I've got your attention, let me remind you that if you're late to an interview, or don't show up at all, there will be no second chance.
I'll be reviewing resumes and emails early next week. That's your best bet. Thanks much!
