I went back and forth with a company supposedly called #Metalife this morning about a #GIS opening. I knew right away it fit the warning posted on #gisjobs website, but wanted to carry it on a bit so I could share it with others. Let me and others know if you have gotten some shady texts so we can help each other and our field out. The text went like this:
+13035699496: Good Day How are you?I am Mrs Stacy Phillip, from metalife inc,and i believe this Bryan Schaefer ? 8:37 AM
Me: Good morning. 8:55 AM
+13035699496: (1/3) I am Mrs Stacy Phillip, from metalife inc,I am contacting you in regards your resume posted on www.Gisjob.com , Let me know once you 9:02 AM
+13035699496: (3/3) Company briefing let me know if you are interested 9:02 AM
+13035699496: (2/3) get this Your resume have been reviewed by the HR Dept. and you have been selected and scheduled for an Online Job Interview and 9:02 AM
Me: I would be interested, but would love to research your company to be better prepared. However Metalife inc. or yourself do not show up on a Google, Linkedin, or Glassdoor search. Please understand I would love, repeat, love to interview, but not being able to get to know your company better and receiving this great news through a text makes me a little skeptical. 9:12 AM
+13035699496: you are to add Mrs Tammy Alen on email@example.com for the job briefing interview 9:17 AM
Me: I'm sorry, but this fits the scam alert warning on Gisjobs.com and when I called the number it doesn't mention Metalife. If you could let me again how to research your company so as not to waste our time on an interview that would be great, but I will not be adding Tammy Alen to my contact list at this time. 9:34 AM
+13035699496: Ok 9:36 AM.
First off I'm using Excel 2010.
I have a file that has almost a million rows with each row containing a short sentence and I am trying to create a word frequency list. There are a handful of macros that almost work, but I get errors messages likely do to computer memory and excel limits. The largest batch that I've been able to do is around 2,000 rows. Last night I tried creating Powerpivot files and again almost got there, but never was able to fully put a list together.
With my limited knowhow of VBA's and Powerpivot my final workaround is to do a text to column on the whole file, make a Pivot table for each column (comes out to about 30 columns) then do some math on the Pivot table columns to find the top ten most used words.
Anyone else have some thoughts on attacking this issue? Thanks in advance!
