i can handle rejection, trust me. at this point, my most-oft heard phrase "someone with more experience" has become the air i breathe. okay, i'm being a little dramatic. but really, when i send you an e-mail to follow up about the status of a position that i spent my time, money, and possibly gas to interview for, the least you can do is give me a quick "sorry, but we went with someone else." it's common courtesy, people. even worse is when you respond with a "we're still making up our minds" and then....nothing. i can't count how many times i've had to stalk linkedin to find out who actually got the position after a month of silence from the employer!
basically, in the words of one stephanie tanner, "HOW RUDE." so let's get it together, folks. just keep a girl posted. you'll only bruise my ego for a minute or two.
