Why is it I can apply for a job that I am perfectly qualified for or extraqualified for and I get a email "WE ARE SORRY WE HAVE DECIDED TO CONTINUE WITH ANOTHER CANDIDATE WITH BETTER QUALIFICATIONS." Like no phone calls, no interviews nothing. What is wrong with people.  Like these can be the literal same positions ive done at other companies. Idk it frustrates me and I needed to vent.

Define perfectly qualified. :steve:
Well nah I'm sure you have the experience and everything but isn't there anything you might be missing?

 Like on the interviews I do get really well and I almost had a job as a 911 dispatcher I passed 2 interviews a polygraph test aswell as an exam but the psychologist gave me interview questions and shit and didn't approve of me doing the job so they revoked my conditional offer. Also this computer shop owner said im one of 3 people he is going to choose for an assistant manager. 

Its just frustrating and I probably wont be able to take that job at the shop because I had to move back in with my parents (money problems) and I know I wont be able to move back cause my girlfirend is moving back too. 

I mean I feel like if I get an interview I can do well. I interviewed for some freelance work to make extra money on the side I got the work. Problem is that it is not full time.

I mean idk I think it seems like a automated email that just filters out candidates and im just not fitting their bill who the hell knows. Maybe im not applying soon enough. Like funny on emailed me back and said we filled this position please apply for another job. I did and then 3 hours later said sorry unfortunately we decided to go with other candidates. 


When I say qualified I mean I look at my resume and look at the requirements and they match. Obviously not going to apply for a job that requires a fucking Masters in physics or some shit. But come on its been 3 months and im like dying over here I need income.

Man atleast they say they don't hire you
I live where that is not polite and conclude with a: "We'll let you know"
and never call you again if you're not taken :( that's 100 times more frustating.

As some people said before, at least they told you that they're not hiring you.

I've been unemployed for 7 months last year and it was really frustrating, because i thought that with my experience i could get a better job elsewhere, when i switched i made the biggest mistake because i was hired by a new company (it's better to work at a known company for less money, trust me) and they made me work 60 hours a week for 20% more money that i was earning and NO SOCIAL BENEFITS AT ALL.

Sure getting a good job is hard nowadays...

The interviews are stupid, they ask you about your situation.. and what's the point? they try to filter serial killers? WTF? being a good-looking guy doesn't mean that you'd be a good worker. Technical Qualifications should be the only thing to judge and obviously, test.
