I applied to a job yesterday and I get a reply back a day later saying

"Thank you for your interest in the Employment Coach Position. We are currently reviewing all resumes. Should we feel your background and skills are a close match for this position, you will be cntacted for further information.

Again we appreciate your interest in emloyment opportunities at NSC."



I don't know about anyone else, but I don't need to know they got my resume, all I need to know is do they have interest in interviewing me after getting the resume. And if this was a smooth rejection why did it have to be so fast and why did I even need response?-lol

The same response is being sent to everyone who applies. It's a form letter. Not sure why you are so up in arms over it. Funny thing is there's another thread on here about someone complaioning because they DIDN'T get a form letter acknoledging the receipt of the resume. Companies just can't win with job hunters these days!

For someone who is allegedly an experienced employment coach, you don't seem to be all that experienced...

I guess when I saw her name before I opened up the email, I thought she was scheduling a interview through email like what happened with the other job. So it threw me off a little because I wasn't expecting a automated response but I think it maybe because tomorrow is a holiday and today is like a friday.

It might mean you are a 2nd tier candidate - not someone they want to bring in to interview in the first wave, but somebody they might contact should their first pass come up empty. Don't hold your breath, but maybe in a few weeks you'll hear from them again. It's not necessarily a rejection, because they can't be sure in advance how the interviewing process will go.

I'm about to just email her back and say-

"my resume doesn't have to be reviewed i just realized i'm no longer interested"

I'd be more worried about the spelling errors in their email!

But seriously, this is just an automated response. I've gotten these and then gotten calls for an interview. Don't reply and be stupid about it, you're obviously interested because you applied. You want them to review your resume so I don't know why you don't want them to review it.

That's not correct. As others have mentioned, it's just a system that sends out a automatic response everytime a resume is received. It doesn't mean anything in terms of your qualifications or candidacy. If I'm not mistaken, even job sites like Careerbuilder sends you a automatic response email to let you know you have applied for xyz position. It's just a waiting game right now.

Hence the word 'might'. If it's a small organization they might not have the automatic response software.

Also note, "Should we feel your background and skills are a close match for this position, you will be c(o)ntacted for further information" means that they will only contact you again IF they want more information or want to interview you. So don't have an expectation that they will send you a rejection letter.

Just trying to nip your next new thread in the bud.

Exactly. I have an e-mail file full of responses that were similar if not identical. I'd say about half the resumes I sent were responded to this way.
