Funny how over the last 30+ years, I had people coming to Me with offers and
not the other way
Must suck to be so part of the herd that you actually need to make an
effort to distinguish yourself

Actually, I think I have applied for ONE job in my life - and didn't
get it. Actuallly it was offered and I turned it down.
Service manager job. The last question he asked was how much I needed
to take the job. I said if I'm not worth $40,000 to him within 6
months, I'm not the man for the job. He said service mangers don't
make 40Gs - I told him he was talking to one who did, and earned every
cent. Then I told him to keep looking, and keep advertising for a new
service manager every 6 to 9 months like he had been for the last 3
Most times it was more them applying to hire me.
That's interesting? You say it used to be asked for, but
hasn't now for years. What caused the change? And how
could you possibly know what all other employers are or
are not doing all over the country?

I said, it used to be SOP, but is not now. That does not mean that
some companies do not still ask for it. I don't know what every
employer does, but I do know what some do and don't do.
What changed? Identity theft and security of personal information. As
this became more of a problem, enlightened employers decided to change
their methods. Some states used to use your SS for your driver's
licence number also. It certainly seems an easy thing to do, but I
know at leas MA stopped doing it.
IIRC every state should have stopped a few years ago. That was
mandated by the Feds. They still can require you give it, but they can
no longer put it on the DL as your license number. FWIW, MCare was
ordered to do the same thing years ago and hasn't quite gotten around to
it yet. They still use SSN as your account number.. which makes it too
easy for the scammers to file false bills.
America is at that awkward stage. It's too late
to work within the system, but too early to shoot
