I mean, especially with everything being electronic these days, how hard is it (and it's not that I "want" an email that says no we're not hiring you - or even giving you an interview - but at least I would know that the application had been received and reviewed! I'm not even asking for a specific response, like we love your work with Conflict Relief etc...but we can't...I'm talking a simple thank you but we can't offer you the position/interview at this time.
Now, don't get me wrong, several places I have submitted applications to in the past have given me just that. But then there are all the others, I have the ad printed out in my binder, the date I emailed the application in, and then NOTHING. When I hear back I put a little note on the paper so that I know ... but I digress,
I guess it's just upsetting, when you put the time and effort into applying somewhere, especially places who've put adverts out, it would be nice to hear SOMETHING back, even if it is a NO.
