Today I received a rejection e-mail for a job I applied for just yesterday!  This is the fastest response I have ever received, plus it’s the weekend!!!  Obviously some computer application does all the screening.  The job is at a well known company that jars spices, their products are in all the supermarkets.

The position I applied for was the exact same title, level, etc., that I have held for 13 years at my last employer.

There is just no telling what goes on within the “black box” of internet applications!

I may send a hard copy application through the mail, although I have done that with a few other company’s and it hasn’t gotten me anywhere (i.e. the cosmetics companies in NY).
