No one enjoys being rejected by company after company. However, there is a certain type of rejection that I find particularly irritating.
“A pet peeve (or pet hate) is a minor annoyance that can instill extreme frustration in an individual. Typically each person has several pet peeves that aggravate her or him more than the average person. Another person may not react as negatively or at all to the same circumstance.” –Wikipedia
How many times has this happened to you? You submit a CV to a company for a job opening via email, written job application, whatever. You may get a confirmation email but often not. A few months later, a letter arrives via the post office thanking you for your interest but acknowledging that your candidacy doesn't meet the company's present needs. What is wrong with this?
Companies should just stop this practice. I'd rather get a rejection letter that's sincere but definite than a letter that's open-ended and meaningless.
Have you had this happen to you? What are your job search pet peeves?
