Workplace etiquette - November 16th 2013, 08:34 PM

A woman I met a few months ago is the president of a transcription company. At the time, she told me she wanted for me to come to her office to see if I could get a position (for transcription in English) there. I even told her I could find people that I know who could do transcriptions in other languages. We emailed back and forth regarding a meetup. Last email was me e-mailing her saying that I was excited to see her the following week and discuss the above.

She never replied.

Last night, I got an email from her assistant (with my last email enclosed!) asking if I could find them people for transcriptions in foreign languages.

It has been about half a year since I last had any contact with the company and with the president not replying to my email regarding 1. having a position and 2. helping them find people who can transcribe in languages other than English.

I find it rude that they want my help after ignoring me. What would be the etiquette regarding this?

Thank you!

I'd ignore it personally and let it go. That's the issue with emails. Also, I would bet she fell on hard times and was too embarrassed to admit back then.

I would either ignore it, or inquire about a job opportunity for yourself. Chances are the assistant will say they don't have any job opportunities... at which point, you can thank them for their response and let it go. Sometimes, people will say they're not hiring, but they'll forward your e-mail to other interested companies... so that's another reason to consider inquiring about a job opportunity. Regardless of the outcome, you're certainly not obligated to provide them with referrals!
