A Quick Bit of Advice for Your Professional Life

If you're trying to get a job, don't set your phone to make your number simply say "blocked" when you call people about said job.

When you call said people and they don't answer (because their phone just says "Blocked"), leave them a voicemail.  10 bucks says they'll call back if you leave a voicemail, and 20 says they won't call back if you don't leave one.

Above all, if you don't leave a voicemail, calling them 8 times a day, beginning at 5:34 in the morning and ending at 10:01 at night is not going to make them call you back, much less answer.

That is all.


  1. And this is experience from the receiving end?

  2. Yes, Petr, unfortunately it is from the receiving end. It's rather funny how many bizarre phone incidents have happened over the short course of my "professional" life so far...


Yes! I'm so happy you decided to leave a comment.
