Applied for job I’m perfectly qualified for. No response. Reposted job 4 weeks later. WTF??

Can someone explain this to me??

A lot of people are "perfectly qualified." Doesn't guarantee you'll ever get a response.


I can beat that. Applied for a job I was totally qualified for. The agency recruiter emailed me to set up a phone interview and asked for my availability, to which I responded immediately. She never got back to me. I emailed again. And a third and fourth time. No response. Over a week had passed. Then, they reposted the ad.


Maybe they had someone in mind and it feel thru? Apply again!!


Yes, people suck.


It might be something totally random that you have no control over. We had to hire a dude for a position on our team because the client kept questioning if a team of women could really know what our male target wants 🙄

Interestingly enough, my friend didn’t get the lead role for a women’s brand because he was a dude.

This company I am interviewing with is not proposing a base salary and an OTE. They are asking me to create it and I really need guidance here. It’s an AE role in medical SaaS sales for orthopedics surgery. What do I need to ask? So far I know that they cover medical insurance, there is no 401k, and there are private company stock options. It’s mainly inside sales with maybe 10% travel.

My thought was 75k base and 110k OTE. But they are saying to lower the base and increase OTE.
