This morning I received a polite "no thanks" letter from an employer.
I've gotten a few of these, so it's not shocking. Still not fun, but at least considerate. Many places never provide any response at all.
But what alarmed me with this one is that even though I have almost 10 years of experience in what the job asked for, the response indicated that I did not have the requisite experience. It was some hair-splitting... like telling a football coach with 10 years of NFL experience that they wanted someone with NCAA experience. I've done precisely the job they need filled, and further, have seen the (inferior) work of people they already have on staff.
This does not start my day off the way I would like.
