Job Market Woes

March 26, 2010

The good news is HR departments are still sending out rejection letters (emails). Because I just got one. The bad news is I applied for an internship with 80% of my degree completed and just shy of five years experience in the field and was rejected because they hired someone whose experience more closely match the position requirements. I'm happy for this person, and maybe they didn't think I was intern-material, which is fine. But it's some helluva job market if people more qualified than me are going after these internships. Nonetheless, I'm pleased to have gotten a letter rather than just not knowing for an eternity. So the company gets a "positiver Punkt" as my German professor would say.
