😮 girl where do you live? And what is so special about the natural salon? Sorry for my naivety I've only ever had natural hair and I just go to a normal shop around the corner for a wash and trim. Whats the difference they're bringing you for that much? I can't afford that lifestyle lol

I have a white coworker who I unexpectedly became attracted to a couple of months ago. We would ping occasionally about work and then exchange messages about other topics, or after having a video call about work, chat about other things. I kind of got the impression he may also like me because he would make subtle comments like I was his favorite colleague to work with and one day when we hadnt talked all day and I pinged him to ask him a question, his response was (see comments)

Throughout my on-going job search, I’ve learned that the recruiters or whoever is your point of contact with a company, owe you an explanation. It does take quite a bit of time to personalize each cover letter. I understand they have so many applications to go through but we deserve solid explanation as to why we weren’t “a good fit for their needs at the moment.” It just is t a good enough answer for me and seems as though the company/organization doesn’t care.
