Many people HR backgrounds at the hospital were similar to mine when comparing past roles as well as the sizes of their facility.

Just because you got a response as to 'why' you were rejected does not mean the 'reason' is true. It could easily be the 'safest' thing they could think of to say.

You are probably following a false trail based on their giving you an untrue 'reason' why you were dropped from consideration.


That they even gave you a 'reason' by replying to your inquiry is quite unusual.


Keep stressing or move on.

This activity was the day after my rejection. I am not stressing, I just gave an answer to his statement. They

have made up their mind and it is nothing I can do to make them reconsider. I know, I know, I know.

And it was a job I really wanted smh. But anyway, I wonder who does the rejecting? Is it the recruiter or HR? It looks to me, HR because of the time it took to be rejected. But geese, what's the point of the phone screening with a recruiter if HR is going to reject you?! Yeah I do understand that they screen to see if your experience is related to the job duties of their open position, but then again, I don't understand.
You can't apply normal logic to what HR does or doesn't do. Their main activity is to justify their existence, so they think nothing of wasting people's time. Because when they waste your time, they are able to show how they spend their time.

HR does nothing useful. Do your best to by-pass them and deal with the hiring manager directly.

See what I mean? HR is useless. If they knew that, why didn't they make sure that was in the job posting before it went out to anyone? Or could have asked you that through e-mail or within the first minute of the phone conversation. The thing is, HR can tell you anything, they are never held accountable for their actions. If HR is a problem, it is a tip of the iceberg for the whole company, because management hired people in HR.

Sorry it didn't work out for you, but from my experience a better job comes along.

HR is always controlled by management. They might like to act like HR has control, but they don't. If HR isn't moving fast enough, it is the fault of the management because when they really want to do something like pay a bonus to top executives or purchase box seats for sporting events, you can be sure that's done perfectly and immediately.
