Yes, I'm still searching for a job. None of the places I've applied to have contacted me back. For all I know, they shredded my resume and used it to line a chincilla cage.
I don't know about you, but it annoys me when people ask, "So what kind of job are you looking for?" I'm looking for a job. I'm not in a situation where I can be picky and say, "Oh, well, I'm only going to apply for sales positions." In my experience, limiting yourself to just one field only results in slightly faster rejection.
I also get upset when I apply for a job, and two weeks later, the job reappears in the want ads. To me, that's a clear sign that they didn't like any of the applications--including mine--so they're trying again. Why else would they have the exact same position available? Unless they hired someone and then fired them within two weeks. Or they're hiring year-round.
Either way, they didn't bother to tell me that I didn't get the job. I had to find out second-hand. That's another problem. No company ever tells applicants when the job position is closed. Only a handful of places send automatic email responses, which go like this:
Dear Mr. Gray,
Thank you for your interest in [position]. We have received your application, and we will review it soon. We will then contact you shortly.
But then they don't. And every day, you check your phone messages and email, hoping that they contacted you, like they promised. And the days just pass by, until you realize they're never going to call. I've reached the point where I hope that I get a email that says, "Hey, Michael! We're not giving the job to you, because you're a total loser!" If that happened, I would be incredibly happy that at least someone has contacted me back.
