About Job Search in Time of Crisis and Flight attendants

Do you think there is actually someone working inside those beautiful offices in the centre of Sydney, the ones with glass doors on the top floors in the city? Other than the receptionist and the IT person that configures the automatic e-mails saying things like:
“After careful consideration, we regret to advise that your application was not successful on this occasion”
I have been trying to get through, to see the inside of one of these employment agencies.
Do you know with every fibre of your being that you are brilliant at work? I do. Why? Because I care. That is the one thing that is different from good workers from the bad ones. The good try to understand the consequences of each of their actions. As simple as that.
I feel like sending cover letters with ridiculous phrases like:
I LOVE YOUR MOM…
READ MY RESUME TO FIND OUT HOW TO BE YOUNG FOREVER…
IF YOU INTERVIEW ME YOU WILL NEVER WANT ANOTHER PIECE OF CHOCOLATE…
FIND OUT HOW TO GET THIN, FIT AND SEXY LIKE BRAD & ANGIE…
HOW TO GET RICH: INSTRUCTIONS INSIDE…
Or the priceless: I LOVE YOUR BUM!!!
I don’t know, just anything that would make them pay attention to me.
I have been trying different strategies: applying by e-mail or through the employment websites. Sending a portfolio with my e-mail and not. Different types of cover letters, from formal to informal, to inspirational, to barely sane. I e-mailed all the agencies, then I am calling them, one by one. Then I call the people in the job ads and today I finished my temporary work at 3pm and decided to visit some of these companies to try to make my way to get an interview… the results were atrocious…
I went to 5 companies before 5 pm:
1 disappeared, wasn’t at the listed internet address.
1 had the lifts blocked you couldn’t go up.
1 had two beautiful receptionists but no-one could see me.
1 was closed, probably at 5, the glass doors were spotless and it was a very nice office.
1 I actually managed to meet an agent, he shook my hand and sent me on my merry way…
There must be a way!!!! THERE MUST BE A WAY!!!
If you know the trick of finding a job in this crazy market, let me know! Recruiters are people, I swear to God they are, so there has to be a way to get to them…
Or are they like flight attendants? I have never met one outside of an airplane, have you?
