A "most unique" No!

Ok, well one of the places I've applied too has unknowingly (I assume it's unknowningly) given me a No - and how many others as well???

Let's see, I emailed my cover letter and resume to the address provided in the online job advert. Shortly there after I got an automatic email response from "them". This response said something like ... in order to keep spam out we block all unknown email addresses ... and then it gave a link to click on if you wanted to be "verified" as non-spam and thus added to their acceptable email addresses. Right, so I click on said link. I wait - a stupidly long time - and get told ... unable to verify because my original email is no longer available.

Well I assumed it was because I had navigated out of the open email response - though the new pop up window from the link they provided was still up and running.

At any rate, I try it again, only this time I keep the original email open while the link window was also open and running. Same response.

This leads me to believe that "they" fully deleted my email application. Perhaps it was simply because they emptied their spam folder ... but I ask you, why put an email address on your advert if it won't allow unkown senders email addresses?

Seriously ... riddle me this, how do they get any submissions at all?

Oh well ... I appear to like to use the three period 'pause' ... dot dot dot ... haha!
