Does anyone have any ideas?
I'm going to go way out on a limb here and give you the benefit of the
doubt, and respond as though you're not a spammer or a troll, even
though I actually believe you are.
You could suggest to him or her, that prospective employers often look
for personal qualities like initiative and self-reliance. "This person"
should be posting his or her own newsgroup messages.
I once had a job applicant, referred by an agency, come to the office
when the office manager had stepped out and locked the front door. He
slinked back to the agency and said he had been unable to keep his
interview appointment because the door was locked. Later I told the
agency person that I wasn't going to hire someone who lacked the
intelligence and drive to try A) knocking on a locked door, and B)
looking for another way into the building.
