I receive email messages telling me of job opportunities through my school office of career services, Vault, and so forth. I send in my resume and cover letter. I hear nothing.
Should I follow up? When? How?
Also, to any in the MT forum that interview candidates, please complete the process. If the candidate is not going to be offered the job, please give them a letter, call, or email. It is quite frustrating to interview (for a round or two) and then never hear from that office again.
Further, give real feedback. If the candidate asks for feedback, give it to him honestly. Mumbo Jumbo about "your credentials are impressive..." doesn't help. If I can't string a sentence together, I'd like to know that so I can practice that skill. If there is a big red flag in my resume that I am ignorant of, I'd like to know this before my next interview. If I am not suited for a particular job category, I'd like to know that so I may cease applying for those positions.
Do I sound like a bitter job seeker?
