Dear Evil HR Lady,
I’ve applied for countless positions, for about a full year now, with one organization. In early spring, I received a call back from a recruiter who was very rude. She kept looking for reasons for why I would not have the time for the job or fit the position.
I made the rookie mistake of leaving her a couple of messages about the application. She then turned me down for the job. I was crushed. Since then I’ve been turned down for every job I’ve applied for. The recruiter turns down my application repeatedly. I met a man who offered to put in a good word and take my resume straight to a hiring manager, and even that didn’t work.
I’ve basically made a powerful enemy, although I want nothing more than a job. What can I do to repair this problem? I know the job market is tough out there and that there are more qualified people. I’d like to work at this company, but I’m not holding my breath anymore. I’d assume at some point it would look bad on a company if they turned a qualified person down an obscene amount of times?
