Does anyone actually mean this:
I'm job searching and when I am rejected after a 'phone screen', I often get a message like this: "We hope you will keep an eye on our career site for other roles you may find interesting.
" That's a particularly polite one (if you're the recruiter who wrote it, I appreciate your phrasing), but they all basically say to reapply to new roles, even at <1000 employee companies. Except I'm a product manager. I applied to be a product manager. The next job I apply for will be a product manager position. There aren't a diversity of roles for which I would apply.
So I'm curious. Has anyone kept applying and gotten a job, or hired someone who did similar? If you're a recruiter, how much of this is polite form letter and how much is an actual request?
