    Average Interview


    Ghosted and then rejected in early Jan, AFTER the Christmas period without the courtesy of someone getting back to me.

    Please stop treating people like an afterthought. The way companies reject applicants says more about a company than how people are accepted. Get back to people on time, sign off your emails with an actual person, and be clear when people can expect a response.

    Job searching is a difficult task and has become more difficult during the span of the pandemic therefore treating applicants in this way (especially over the Christmas period) where people may be struggling is abhorrent.

    I found the article "No resume? No reference? No worries!" a farce after this treatment and implore you to revise your processes. You claim to want to give people a go, to provide opportunity yet you won't even provide the respect of getting back to people in a reasonable time frame.

    Please revise how you recruit new applicants. Thank you.
