Situation: An agency has posted a job yesterday and has asked translators to contact them via email.

Setback: Their email is over quota - I responded 5 min after the ad was posted - and bounces back.

What would you do? Would you try to find any other ways to contact? would you call them? or just forget about it?

Find alternative contact methods Jun 29, 2005

Hi Rahi,
If the job is interesting enough (and the outsourcer appears to be reliable), you could try contacting them through their website.

If the job was posted on, and the e-mail address bounces, you could also contact a Jobs moderator. Sometimes, we know an alternative address.

Best regards,
