Dear Applicant, You bite the big one.

5 years ago




I got a rejection letter today.

The letter was for a job I applied for in late November. I also got one yesterday for one that I applied for in early November.

I'm not that upset, because I figured out a while ago, that they would have called me in December if I they wanted me for either of the jobs.

In a way, I'm actually relieved to get a letter. I'm at the point in my job hunt, that just hearing back is a blessing. It is one less thing to worry about.

Where do you stand on rejection letters? Personally, I think it's rude to interview someone and never let them know one way or the other. I know we'll all figure it out eventually, when we've not heard back from them for months. But help me out here. I hate wondering about an opportunitiy for longer than neccessary. Let me put my energy into something else.

I've said it a few times, but I'm even up for, a "dear applicant, you suck and we're going with someone more awesome than you".

I just want to know something.
