Today I found out, there's something worse than companies not replying to job applications. I got a direct message from a company in German asking me when they could call me. I replied that anytime would be fine, but I may ask to repeat things in English as I'm still learning German. Today I got a reply that they are looking for fluent speakers... Thanks for confirming you didn't even bother looking at my resume for even a single fucking second...


I don't want to excuse the behaviour, but this is mostly due to useless automated bots/AI/whatsoever totally hyped job application systems. Nobody reads applications these days, they are relying to the systems installed.

@tpheine I am sadly well aware. One of the fields where AI etc has only made things worse, way worse.

I agree! And I wish you good luck for your applications.
