Job hunting is a tough job. Even for someone thick skinned, seasoned, positive, rational, realistic, open-minded and understanding that not every job is perfect for them.
I have never received a rejection like I did today – just 21 minutes after submitting my resume on the major online job search website I received this message. “DOES NOT MEET ZIP Code Proximity CRITERIA” for a job just 22 miles away from my home – via interstate highway.
I am wondering if this digital communications company is not savvy enough to post a job and select the appropriate geography or if they really want employees who live around the corner from their office.
Either way. Do I want to work here?
