Has anyone ever replied to a rejection email? Usually, I don’t pay attention, I just keep moving. The Hiring Manager promised me that the Recruiter would call me to schedule a time for the next phase. A couple days later, I saw that Indeed reposted the position like it was new. I did some research and thé reasons stated in the forum: -company may just interview people although it already has a chosen candidate -company has not found a suitable candidate -company has not interviewed enough candidates -position has been filled -etc... Anyway, after that,I clicked on another job website, position has been filled Two days later, I get a notification from a different website showing that only 2 people applied for the position. When I did not get the call last week, I had a feeling that they already hired someone.
However, this rejection email is a little different than what I usually receive. It seems more agreeable with all the usual wordings in a rejection email.
I could be disappointed because they did not keep their word but I meant to reply and thank the Recruiter for her time. Since, I already sent a Thank You email after the interview to both Recruiters and Hiring Manager ( only the Recruiter replied), should I reply to the rejection email or not? Perhaps, it could be that I am on a more positive journey; therefore, I am seeing everything different now.

About seven months ago I moved from Atlanta, Georgia to the state of New Jersey I left a really good job in Georgia and had to start all over in New Jersey due to my spouses job transfer. I found it really hard to look for a job in New Jersey I was getting nowhere I was sending out resumes and I was not getting any callbacks . I decided to try cold calling . What I did was compile a list of companies in my area that I wanted to work and I probably started out with about 30 companies I researched the phone numbers and contact information of each company . I called the company and I asked for the hiring manager , if possible do not ask for anybody in human resources because they will not help you try and ask for the hiring manager of the department you want to work in. Once you get in contact with the hiring manager tell them which department that you are interested in working in . If they tell you to apply online don't forget to give them your name and contact number so that they remember you . Sometimes they'll ask you to email your resume to them , if they do send a great cover letter along with your resume with all your contact information once you do that wait about two weeks and call back , keep a record of all the companies that you call including contact numbers the date and who you talked to. you will get more callbacks looking for a job this way. It will feel weird at first but once you get good at it it will come easy this way you are taking control of your own job hunt you can look up tips on cold calling for a job online there's all kinds of different great tips but this is what I did and it worked for me!
Super confusing, right?! Ok, here’s the breakdown: “HR” (or human resources) can describe lots of different functions, like Recruiting, Compensation, Employee Relations, Benefits Administration, etc. Large companies typically have specialists in each of these areas & they are all independent jobs (and are often separate departments). Small & medium companies can have one person handling all of them OR they can have different people covering one (or many) different functions.
“Recruiters” typically manage the hiring process, which usually includes company branding, posting open jobs, reviewing resumes, interviewing, offer negotiation, and (sometimes) on-boarding.
“Hiring Manager” describes anyone in the company who needs to hire, which means someone can be all 3! If the HR Manager is also managing the recruiting process to find an employee to work FOR THEMSELVES, then s/he is all 3.
What does this mean for you? It means that it doesn’t matter what the person’s title is. You should engage with the person who contacts you for the interview as though s/he is the most important person you’ll speak to. Because that’s the truth.
This contact should be able to differentiate who-is-responsible-for what. And during your interview, you should ask about the interview process, the team, management and/or organizational structure, and make sure to ask how you should follow up. Regardless of title or department, focus on how you can impress everyone you meet. IT’S YOUR TIME TO SHINE!

I have applied for a couple of positions that was advertised as being opened. However, I have yet to be contacted. Does anyone know of a person I can follow-up with to see if the position has been filled or has my resume been received or being looked at. I just need a HR or Hiring Manager's contact info.
