I got a first “offer” for my resume at monster.com. It actually doesn’t look quite bad, but also doesn’t seem to fit me 100% – and it’s a temporary job with the option of extending the contract. Not what I am looking for, being in a permanent contract right now. The job would also not take me abroad. The employer in this case didn’t bother to read my list of preferred countries – or the note which says “I am looking for a job outside Germany.”

I might still send them a “no thanks” email. It seems polite enough. We’ll see.
