My application for an IT job with Bank of Ireland

Just got this back from Bank of Ireland:

Thank you for your application regarding IT vacancies, which we received today. We are currently reviewing your CV against our requirements. Should your details match our current requirements we will contact you to arrange an interview – we would expect this to be within two weeks. If you do not hear from us within that timeframe, it means that on this occasion your details did not match our requirements. As these requirements change we may have a need for someone with your skills and capability in the future. We will therefore retain your details on file for a period of three months.

Good to hear. Especially since I didn’t apply for a job with them in the past 3 or 4 years, if ever. I’ve not actually applied for any job in years. Happy where I am. Well done there BOI!

    *Ring the data protection commission and report them. If you can manage to order a Subject Access Request under regulation they won’t do it again. Virtual data colonic irrigation. I am not sure if that is court ordered or not, I suspect not. So much for privacy. I assume that someone else was meant to receive this data. Dual infringement of your virtual right to privacy.*

    Could you send in my CV the way you did? That’s more response that I usually get from any submission I’ve made to date. What’s your secret? 😉

    Thanks for the tip, I’ll send my CV to the BOI…err HP. And get outsourced with the rest of the dublin crew.

  4. Heh, i got precisely the same email, and I must have applied for something when I was in college.

  5. I’ve been signed up for things I never saw, denied for offers I never solicited and called for interviews I never requested. Once you have a public e-mail address, you get all sorts of things, especially when people try to mask their identities by using yours.

    Aren’t you the popular one? Getting job offers you didn’t even want.

    Sounds like a recruitment agency sending out old CVs. I got a call from one Ireland’s biggest agencies a few years ago…10 years after I’d sent them a CV as a graduate.
