100+ Qualified candidates
Can someone please help me understand why employers think it is kind, respectful and helpful to be told that I am ONE of 100+ candidates? How is that supposed to make me feel? Clearly, the odds of getting this job decreases with more promising candidates. Oh! Wait! Does it make delivering the unfortunate news that I did not get the job easier FOR THE EMPLOYER? Is there a HR nuance here that I do not understand? How can we help the universe by explaining this is just not helping!? Looking for work right now is terribly demoralizing. Knowing that I was one of so many feels hopeless and frustrating. I'm looking for an accountable, direct employer who will simply say, "Thank you for YOUR interest, at this time, what you bring to the table does not match our need." Discuss.
