Man Asks Job Recruiter for Love Advice In Letter You Have to Read to Believe


Iphone emailI think it's safe to assume that most men in their mid-20s are just starting to think about what they want in their life. They're just starting to take themselves serious, get out of that party boy phase, and trade in glasses of Natty Ice and Bud Light for something a bit more respectable like Sam Adams Oktoberfest. They're starting to think about the M word. That's right: Marriage. Oh, and monogamy.

So when you're all about serious about finding a lady it's only natural to ask for advice, right? Well, one University of Wisconsin -- Milwaukee student looking for an accounting gig met a female recruiter at a career night and naturally, reached out to her for advice.

Right, not about getting a job, but about relationships and how they work when you're looking to be, you know, an accountant. The result is this hilarious letter that's currently blowing up, one that you need to read as of like, 20 minutes ago. Thus I present you with the most fantastic thing you'll read all day:

Sent: Tuesday, October 01, 2013 11:06 PM
Subject: Question


We talked a couple weeks back at the UW-Milwaukee accounting night. (I was the one looking for equity research positions and had a zit on my lip that could have passed for a cold sore. Lol. Whew. It was not. You're probably like, "uh.. What?" Maybe that helps you recall, maybe not. Not completely important, I suppose.

Anyways, if you have a chance here is my question: (background first) I interviewed with BDO and Baker Tilly today, two firms that seem like good places to work, I believe they don't kill you like a big 4. Tomorrow I have an interview with Deloitte :O somewhere I thought I've always wanted to work. Obviously I don't have an offer so this is all hypothetical thinking, but if I get the job, the reality of the situation is that I'm getting old. 25. I know you can't force love and I know it just comes when you're not looking, but would working for a big four completely squash any possibilities for potential relationships if one came along? Is working for a big four a potential career - love trade off? I mean, I like money(as do most females) but love is...great :) What are your thoughts?



Sent from my iPhone   

I love that this is sent from his iPhone, which may explain some of the mistakes here. Now onto the letter itself. The fact that this 25-year-old thinks sending this kind of letter to a recruiter who may want to help hire him is a GOOD idea is epically hilarious. And the part about the zit on his lip? Man, that just set this whole thing up for awesomeness.

I commend him, though, for thinking ahead in life. Unlike some other guys his age, he's got that going for him. It's good that he doesn't want to waste his whole life away at a desk. Heck, it's fab for his future girlfriend (god bless her) that he wants to spend time with her outside of that whole shuteye thing. Unfortunately, he's one step behind when it comes to street smarts, and now he's most likely NOT gonna land these jobs.

What do YOU think of this hopefuly 20-something's letter?

Its like that time when an interviewer asked me at 23 where I saw myself in five years and I.said staying at home with my two kids. Yeah. Didn't get that job. But I got another until I quit when I had number one and here I am five years later home with two. He's young and thinking about love and honestly I find it even more tacky for her to make that public!!

Wow. How unbelievably unprofessional of that recruiter to share that letter. The kid wanted help, not to be ridiculed on the internet.
