How not to get a job to supplement your graduate fellowship.

1) Compose the following email:

Good Afternoon,

I am (name), a graduate student. I have good academic
credentials in my undergraduate study.I am good at
I am looking for a job. can you help me?
Looking forward to a favourable reply.


2) Attach your enormous CV as a Word file.

3) Send it to a hundred random email addresses plucked from the university's directory.

I have no idea why I got this. All the other addresses appear to be professors and people in adminstration. I was just amused by the fact that someone actually thought randomly spamming professors and administrators with their CV was going to work. Of course, if it does, more power to him/her...but somehow I think not.
