Mandy asked (and Jess seconded):
When asked if we found the job opening on the UTA list, what do you advise us to say? If we say yes will employers ever ask how we have the list? or do you think they will leave it at that. Just curious.
The joblist isn’t a state secret. You just have to know that it exists in order to find it. In fact, the very fact that you found it is a check in the plus column for you.
I don’t imagine they’ll ask how you found it. If they do, tell them the truth– you’re friends with a stunningly beautiful PA who has the inside track with the writers of the list. And if they want a well connected assistant like that, they should hire you.
