    Lottery Costs More

  • you have a better chance of being hit by lightening, than either of those 2 things happening.

  • You dont have to give them your social security number to play the lotto.

  • Same difference as between an apple and a lucky rabbit’s foot. Duh.

  • there isn’t! lol
    except you waste money while playing the lotto….

  • Do I really have to point it out?

  • you have a better chance winning the Lotto

  • easy, in lotto, the odds of winning are 1 in 80,000,000 (million). In other words, you won’t win the lotto…

    odds of finding a job are much better than that.

  • I applied for a job online and the person I sent my resume to said the position I applied for was already filled, but they had another position that I might be interested in. I was interested and now I have that job. I wouldn’t totally discredit applying for a job online, then again if you’re going after a job that everyone else is going to want in a popular location, then yes the odds will be againt you. Unfortunately for you, that works to the employers advantage because they get a large pool of candidates to select from.

  • Obviously, you’ve had bad experiences with one or the other, or both!

    Playing any lottery or gambling game, even a friendly game of poker, relies on chance, odds, probabilities, etc.

    Applying for a job with a legitimate company and/or agency depends on your qualifications (as given in your resume), your personality (how are you going to fit in with your prospective employer?), and, unfortunately, the attention span of the person receiving your resume (assuming it’s a real person, and not just a computer program designed to sift through e-mails).

    I’ve had lots of experience with job seeking, through both virtual and physical methods, but I’d like to share an experience I had on the other side: I worked for a company of 200 employees, where I was the head computer programmer. I was overloaded and desperately needed help. My boss gave me permission to advertise in the local paper (this was just before the internet “took off”). I received 200 responses for the single job. It was easy to eliminate those who had no matching background (you’d be surprised how many people “fish” or “troll” for jobs they aren’t qualified for!). I also eliminated any that had ANY spelling and grammar, of which I’m a stickler (if he/she can’t write well, then he/she probably can’t speak well, as well, and I won’t deal with that, and I certainly don’t want my customers to have to deal with it!). I also eliminated non-locals and people from overseas whose background seemed odd and/or could not be easily verified (besides, the ad clearly stated that we wouldn’t pay for moving expenses). That left SIX candidates!!! Two had already found jobs by the time I called them for the interview. I interviewed the remaining four, but only ONE was deemed “perfect”. Unfortunately, she decided that she wanted to go a different route (I wondered whether she merely “used” me to practice her interview skills for the other job, or she simply didn’t like what she saw and was being polite; however, I offered her a substantial salary for the time (my company didn’t discriminate pay by sex), so I presumed that the other job was “legit”!), and I didn’t like the other candidates on a personal level, so my boss hired one of those, who turned out to be a complete jerk, personality-wise; I won’t go into details, but he was fired after just two weeks. I refused to consider the remaining two candidates. So, only 1 out of 200 candidates was “valid”, but none worked out. Maybe I would have been better off playing the lottery on the company’s behalf! 😉

    In other words, it’s something of a “crapshoot”, from both perspectives.

    Good luck!
