Last year I applied to speak in high schools and colleges for Making it Count a division of Monster. It would allow me to speak around the Mobile area part-time in addition to working @ FBTC and make up for some missing income. They never hired anyone for the area and then advertised for the position again last spring. I talked to someone on the phone on 2 different occasions. I never got a rejection letter or an offer. Now they are advertising again. I can handle rejection. What I can't handle is unprofessionalism. At least send an e-mail telling people where they stand. I have seen this on many occasions. People these days don't have common courtesy! What happened to sending thank you notes? What happened to treating people better than yourself? Some people are good at this. I stopped by to say hello to my former pastor in Atlanta a few weeks ago. A week later I received a nice note from him thanking me for stopping by to see him. No wonder he is successful. I'm sure I have missed sending thank you notes in the past. But I try to be grateful. I try keep people's feelings in mind. I try to put myself in their place. I just wish people were more professional.
