Now, they even think my comments are inappropriate (or who knows, may be irrelevant?) and do not publish them… boy, am I amused!
Yesterday, I was reading Michael Melcher’s rather common sense advice on how to handle the silence, which job-seekers are faced with during their job search endeavors. There were about 11 comments from readers, some with web-links to their blogs, or business pages. After reading this piece, I sent the following comment to the blog moderator at The New York Times:
“Eight months back I blogged about this very subject by putting my thoughts in somewhat blank verse (and based on my mood then, a tad tongue-in-cheek). Here’s the link to how I expressed myself https://chitralekhan.wordpress.com/2008/03/18/automated-voice-message-systems/
Michael, thanks for your online advice regarding offline job-pursuits.”
Is it abusive, off-topic, trite? Or holds a grain of truth? 😉
If you’re looking for career advice on job hunting, chances are you’ve already read Melcher’s post. No matter what, don’t lose heart. Hold this torch, continue with your search.

I wouldn’t call it abusive or off topic… likely they didn’t publish your comment because of the link back to your blog. Could be that Aksimet is setup to auto-block posts with links in them.
Thanks, EBookGuru. You know, I did initially wonder if that was the case, but here’s a link to one of the comments which a reader made.
Within this comment is the reader’s link to her page on wordpress. Well, may be you’re right. Again, thanks for your inputs. 🙂
