In the time it’s taken me to apply for a job, have two interviews, be offered the job and accepted it, a couple of places have just decided they want me for interview. One publishing house decided I was simultaneously overqualified and not skilled enough. Another just never got back to me. One agency, passive-aggressively, asked me by phone and e-mail to get in touch with them, then never returned my calls.
What is it with HR people? How bright can you not be, and still function as a human being? Is that not relevant?
