Have you ever applied to a job at a place where you knew the people hiring in a non-professional capacity before applying? |
Brought to you by me applying for a job at my church. I used to babysit for the pastor regularly and he suggested I apply for it when I was over for dinner. He's asked for a CV and cover letter because they have to follow a clear process. I'm guessing I should just write a cover letter like I normally would (similar style etc), but it seems so awkward. Also, you know, church job, they're not going to care as much about how much I can sell myself... Is it ok to ask for details of what they want the person to be like? I've been sent a lovely detailed job description (it's 2 pages long) but it's just a list of things the job is likely to involve rather than specific skills etc required. I should just ask how much it pays shouldn't I? Or should that wait for if they interview me?
I hate job hunting.
DK/DC: Are there any series you would recommend that are on (German) Netflix? Tell me a little about it too. I've finished all the New Girl and Big Bang Theory they have so I'm looking for something new. I love Orphan Black, but only the first series is available and I've seen that already. I tried Orange is the New Black but I wasn't the biggest fan.
