By a company I applied to 3 months ago and hadn't heard anything from since. I pretty much got the picture that I wasn't getting the job by the fact that they never responded, did they need to now? Must they rub my face in the fact that I am such a loser?!

This is the first time my loserness has shined so brightly.

Do you ever get use to it?

This was intended as a pm for Venom, right?

The rejection is much too nice to be Venom.

I prefer the rejextion

the usual way from physics profs is to just ignore you

in which case you don't know whether it is worthwhile to try more (if they are busy or something) or if you are rejected..

I've applied to well over 60 jobs in pass few months. Only about 2/3rds have actually replied in any way shape or form. I just thought it odd that this company, which couldn't even say "we have your resume and will review it" would rather wait a few months and then send the "Nope" card. Odd. I had completely forgot about my application.

Yeah JM, the "don't call us, we'll call you" is awful, especially when you get the cold shoulder.

If you want to fool them around, just phone them up and say you never applied for the job in the first place.

As much meaning as sending a rejection 3 months down the line.

I think that's possibly the most insulting comment I've ever read on this site.

That does seem cruel.

My first rejection letter, which I got last week, I kinda looked at as a positive thing, because it meant they bothered to look me over. I had never gotten a rejection letter before, just stoney silence.

The worst rejection letter I got kindly informed me that they only had two positions available and so couldn't give me the job. Fuckers.

No, it still wound me up no end no matter how many previous rejections I had received...

The state of HR relations in the world is abysmal.
Funny thing is, you wonder how many applicants end up being lost customers for these companies, job or no job.
I have a paper thin tolerance for bad customer service of any kind and tend to be the silent person who never spends another dime there.
I'd be overly kind to rejected applicants as policy.

I just only ever got the generic rejections letters. You know the ones that they have saved somewhere, change the name of the recipient, and send to everyone.

The system I do most of my work on is a recruitment system.

It's online and does some screening with feedback before you actually submit your application so you can choose not to apply if you don't meet the basic criteria for the job - you can still apply if you don't but they'll most likely just reject you. It also helps automate letters etc.

Interestingly - especially after what BGH said - all our clients have said that they need to send some kind of communication to all their applicants whether they want to interview them or not. Most of them are well known highstreet names and their applicants are also potential customers but even if not - a person might not be suitable for one particular job but could be a great candidate for a different job in the future. The time thing is an issue so the fact we help them speed that up is a big selling point.
