"I’ve applied to over 200 jobs in the past 4 months, have had 25 interviews with about 12 different companies.

Some of those where final interviews for very prominent organizations.

To date, I’ve only received actual feedback why organizations were not choosing me from two organizations.

TWO brave companies that had the courage to tell me why they were going with another candidate.

It’s time to put the human back in Human Resources."

Recruiters and managers, stop blowing us off in very advanced stages of the recruitment process with the pathetic excuse of "you don't have enough experience/we continued with a candidate who had more experience" when we all know it's an absolute lie.

We're not fools. After we've gone through all the stages and are moments away from signing a contract, we deserve a decent and respectful response, not some dismissive statement because you want to end the conversation quickly and run to your lunch break.

I finished a recruitment process for a job I really wanted and wasn't accepted.

The entire process was very kind and professional.

We reached the very last stage and I was explicitly told we were about to sign a contract.

I called the recruiting manager to check the status and she told me they decided not to proceed with me due to a lack of experience.

I have experience!!!

The issue of experience never came up in any conversation.

The call lasted a minute and was very distant and unpleasant.

I felt I was being brushed off rudely, which was opposite to the impression I had of them.

Why leave me in this uncertainty and give me such a disgusting and frustrating feeling?

I don't understand what's the problem in giving a respectful and normal response.

I really don't understand why they backed out at the last minute, and if they would have explained, I would have ended the process more positively.

Now I'm left with a great deal of resentment.

Stop underestimating our intelligence.

Stop seeing us as a burden you need to get rid of.

It's crazy that the recruitment process has turned into a battlefield.
