Y’all, there are too many people in the world. I’m not sure if the following is supposed to make me feel happy or sad, but I’ve applied for a job that is literally the utterly perfect match with my skillset. Don’t ask me what my skillset is. Secretly, I don’t have one. I’m lucky enough to have one inside track at the company, but this is the response I just got when I pestered for further information.
You’re grossly overestimating the efficiency of the hiring process here. :-) They’ve got something like 300 candidates for each spot so just weeding through the resumes is going to take awhile. In other words, no news yet.
I choose to take this as good news, and a reminder to all that when you send in a job application and never hear back, it’s really nothing personal.
In the meantime, I shall wander the streets wearing a sandwich board sign that reads, “Will work for positive reinforcement.”
