I feel the strong urge to list all of the companies I have had the most fleeting of dealings with whilst looking for work.
The ones who respond to your on-line application and tell you “how great you are”, “just what my client is looking for”, “awesome skill set that will fit right in”…
and then nothing.
They simply disappear. You chase them and get nothing no response, no reply.
Yeah, I know to most of them it’s a numbers game but would it really be so difficult to answer an email saying sorry the client isn’t interested.
Of course, I won’t name names. I already got into trouble for venting my anger/frustrations in this blog (Hi Si, if you’re reading this - and sorry again) and so I won’t be repeating that particular faux pas.
