Dear Evil HR Lady,
Why has it become a practice for companies, if they do not hire you, to not even have the courtesy to tell you didn’t get the job? I’ve gone to an interview, sometimes even TWO interviews, only to never hear from the company again. The job seeking process is hard enough and the silent rejection makes finding a job seem like a lottery.
Just so we’re clear, I’m going to focus on people who have interviewed. If you’ve just sent in a resume, not getting a response is not unreasonable. If you submit it electronically, you should get an automated response, but other than that, don’t hold your breath.
