After careful consideration...

This is a somewhat standard email, but at least it's nice to know you're not being considered. I'd take this over hearing nothing any day!

Folks, if you want to share your rejection letters, please feel free to email them to: rejectedjobapps@gmail.com. All personal information will be taken out (if you haven't done so already). Thanks!

Truck Driver

We are back from break! Happy New Year to everybody, and I hope 2012 has been treating you well so far.

This is what we woke up to this morning. It is extremely frustrating to get job listings for 'Truck Driver' when you have your preferences set to 'Marketing' jobs. How are these two connected? ZipRecruiter, please filter more carefully!

The function is not available anymore

We find it really annoying when companies leave up job postings even though the position has already been filled. It just feels like all that effort you spent towards the application was a complete waste of time.

The holiday blues...

So job seekers...how is the holiday season treating you? Are you finding that there are less jobs posted online? Have recruiters and hiring managers gone into vacation mode and they're not looking at job apps until January? It is frustrating, we know. However, don't give up!

Things have definitely slowed down around here but that does not stop us from networking at holiday parties and family get-togethers. Definitely let those around you know that you're still looking for a job and also what field/industry you're interested in. You never know if they might know of somebody who is hiring.

Also, don't stop applying to jobs you see posted online/newspapers/anywhere else or hear about through word of mouth just because it's the holidays. Keep at it and don't break the momentum. We all know how easy it is to procrastinate (umm...there's a reason my treadmill is dusty) and once you go down that path, it's really difficult to pull yourself out of it.

One more thing, we have gone international! Our European counterparts are also feeling the sting of this global recession (that just won't seem to end!). However, it seems that it is more standard for companies in countries like The Netherlands and Germany to send out rejection letters than it is here in the US.

Thanks for reading!

The position has been closed

Thank you for letting me know the position has been closed. Really wish more companies would take the time and effort to let job seekers know what is going on. Yes, I know they are overwhelmed and it's unrealistic...but it's a common courtesy.

We are not currently hiring

I guess that's always a good thing to know...also the fact that they have "out your CV on file".
