    Interview

    I had spoken to the President of the company directly about a VP role. This position required 10-15 years of experience. She told me to speak with this girl in Human Resources because she was handling the position. She would let the "girl", not woman, know she was sending me over. I not only sent this girl an email but must have called her once every 2 weeks for 2 months and I didn't even get a response.

    I looked her up on Linked In. She's 26 years old. Four years out of college. I have zero idea why they have a 26 year old screening for a high level VP position. She has no real experience to judge for a position that takes 10-20 years of experience. To not even acknowledge someone the President sent over? That's just amateurish and unprofessional. Not only is it a great way to miss out on a lot of talent, it's a horrible way for a company to be represented.
