    Dear Anita,

    I have been applying to jobs like crazy for a Clerical full time position but have not had many interviews. I saw online an ad for an Individual Day Support position working with adults with disabilities and I got a voicemail from someone who wanted to talk to me about the job. I want to know if the company has any incentives for me to interview with them because it is only an hourly position and not in my field of interest. Should I call the person back?

    Sincerely,

    Miss Unsure

      Miss Unsure, It depends on how desperately you need a job! But I grew up in a more courteous age, so I would call back just to say that this was not a position I would typically be interested in. Ask what it was about your résumé that prompted them to contact you for this position. You never know; you may find a new and fulfilling career path!
