Why does it take SO LONG to get a reply? Honestly, I'm looking for new perspective on this topic so please feel free to share. I have job-hunted for almost 2 years and, here in FL, it takes way too long to get a reply. If you post for a position, I assume you are prepared to move forward with it. I'm not foolish, I know you have the find the right candidates, phone interview, in-person interview, etc., and these things can take weeks. I'm talking about after all of that. I still get rejection letters from places I applied to...months ago. And even if it's just a text or an email - just let candidates KNOW so they can move on. Does this really takes weeks, even months? Please relay what you think of this delay (yes, I just made that up).
