[Michlib-l] About that job posting

Hello Connie:

I think that your first reaction was correct. I have a fourth reason: the applicant is not comfortable with, or does not believe in, technology. In any case, I do not believe this person is right for your library.

Any such applicant did not follow the submittal directions. If it were my call, I would not accept those applications.

Good luck with your search.

Subject: [Michlib-l] About that job posting

A few weeks ago I posted a job listing on Michlib and my coop's job board.  The listing very clearly states that resume etc. should be submitted to the following email address.  The listing did not include any mailing address.  Today I received my second fat envelope full of paper in application for the job.
I have 3 reactions to this fat envelope.
1. This person does not do well at reading directions.
2. This person does know how to look up addresses.
3. The wastebasket.
How would you react? Am I wrong here?  Interested in your comments? Also note, that so far I have 20 apps.
