Unfortunately, the present recession has hit all of us very hard. I am one of many who is unemployed. I have been unsuccessful in obtaining employment.
Is there a reason why, when prospective employees respond to a job advertisement in writing, the employer cannot respond promptly in kind?
I have spent countless amounts of time, effort and money to mail resumes to various "blind" and advertised companies, awaiting patiently a response of some kind and getting nothing.
Prospective employer: I need to work, and it would be appreciated if you could respond one way or another once my resume is sent to you. While patience is indeed a virtue, it is not during a recession.
