I had a great phone interview last Tuesday with a director from a company that was extremely close to the job I was doing before I got laid off. I emailed them directly on September 30, then found the same posting on LinkedIn, so I applied again.
I then followed up on my original email.
During the interview he mentioned that it was my follow up that got me the interview because when he read my original resume he thought I was overqualified.

I have interviews three jobs in the past two weeks. I called to check on my application. Personnel told me the department would contact me and to call them. I called the department and she told me contact personnel. I checked my mailbox and the woman from the department sent me a letter, dated the day of my interview saying I was not chosen. I have 5 degrees and administrative experience and skills. What else do they want?

As the job seeker, we are on our best behavior, but recruiters and hiring managers are not. I tell myself that I wouldn’t want to work with that company anyway if they treat people like that, the way they are trying to recruit.
How many times have they asked for your Resume then they are gone, or when you have a phone interview then you never hear back from anyone.

I have been a recruiter for 20 years+. Here is what happens to a submitted resume:
1) If you are given a persons email to submit a resume it will go to that persons email. Now you have their email address and can follow up with your resume.
2) You send it to an HR inbox. This is where it gets tricky- in this case they are in most cases using a resume software key-word search to search your resume. It will tally how many times key words from their... see more

Thank you Todd for explaining the application process.

So I just moved back home an am desperately looking for a job. Recently I managed to land an interview with this hotel and was super excited because I REALLY wanted the job. I brought extra resumes, had my own writing tools, asked the right questions, and even took the bus just to get there fifteen minutes early. It took them two weeks to reply just to say no and before that even happened I made sure to call them, email them, and even went in... see more
