[Michlib-l] About that job posting again

I posted the comments below about an applicant that sent their app via
paper instead of email.

I enjoyed the discussion that many of you took part in.

Except the rude personal messages. From two respondents. The thought that a
Michigan library employee would send me those kind of snotty remarks
(twice!) via his work email is surprising.

Several of you urged me to look at the application so I broke down and did
so. I opened it, only to find out the person DOES NOT have an MLIS degree

But have more apps to review, 23 so far.

Thanks for your input.

Raising a reader is: Talking * Singing * Reading * Writing *  Playing

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.
