Jobs Update

So I called most of the universities I intend to apply for lecteur posts at, and everyone I spoke to was super nice and helpful. I think I made some people think that I'm charming and should recieve a lecteur post, so that will be helpful.

Then I started emailing out my letter and CV. Guess who can't remember to attach the stupid CV and letter to the actual email? Oh yeah, that would be me.

Hopefully that adds to my charm.

Thanks guys! Yeah, I really hope the forgetful foreigner thing doesn't get my email deleted first thing tomorrow morning...

I have an extension in my thunderbird that prompts me if I am trying to send an email with the word "attachment" or "attached" without attaching anything. Has saved my a$$ more than once :)

What is a thunderbird? I assume you aren't talking about the car... Even though that's a really cool thing, I don'tthink it would have helped my stupidity because I didn't use anything close to "attachment" in my email. I'm beyond hope :p

Oh, I forget all the time! And I'm not saying that so it makes you feel better!

At least, you realized it.

Of course, it had to your charm. All French know that English-speaking people are sooo busy they often forget resumes and cover letters! In doubt, blame the email service, like proper French would do.:D

Oooh, good point about blaming the email system! I'm totally going to do that next time. "Please excuse the lack of attachments in the last email, my email system must have malfunctioned and forgot to read my mind that I wanted to add a couple of attachments..."

Good luck with the lectrice posts! I remember Sam mentioning that nonsense about wanting someone fresh off the anglo boat if you will. But, that doesn't mean it will be like that everywhere! Oh and I forget to attach docs all.the.time. My suggestion? Once you open the email, add the doc right away as an attachment and then write the email! Bon courage!
