Absent HRM Professionalism

What's wrong with the "professionals" in this region? I research the company, apply for a job I qualify well for, etc. Several email and phone calls later I'm invited for a 90 fucking minute interview then never hear from anybody again. Never a "thank you," a "fuck you," nothing!

This wouldn’t be a "valid" bitch unless this happened on more than one occasion. Let’s just say it’s happened often enough for me to assume the whole lot of “professionals” in this town don’t have a fucking clue.

In the land where I come from, when a professional is interviewed for a job, they are treated with respect whether they're successful through the interview process or not. A simple note like, "you were not successful but we'll keep your resume on file… blah blah blah" is better than the big blow off... it's also more appropriate in a professional community. Too bad the HRM doesn’t have one.
