It's Rachael again. I emailed you a week ago after you inquired about the customer service position we advertised in Craigslist. In case you didn't receive it, I thought I'd try to contact you one last time.
I am the HR executive for Recotti, a marketing and promotions company which mainly focuses on promoting products, offers and services aimed towards women, on behalf of our clients. However, we also promote other offers as well if we think they are a good fit for our company.
As you can appreciate, in the current climate, we have been inundated with enquiries about this position and as a result, we need a little more information from you to assist your application.
As a customer service representative, you will be able to access a customer's bank account details and other sensitive data. With this in mind, part of our routine background and security checks involve all applicants to perform a routine credit check to verify their details. This check is at no cost to yourself and all details will remain confidential.
Please note, your application will not be determined by your credit rating, it is used simply to verify the data submitted in your resume is correct.
I am eager to see what you can offer us, so if you have not obtained your credit score within the last seven days, please obtain one via the link below:
Next, input your score onto our application page below, where you can also upload your resume to us. Please note, we only want your score, not your entire report so there are no issues of revealing private data.
After you have supplied us with your score and resume, I will be able to review your application as soon as possible.
