A debriefing can be a bit self-esteem crushing, but I've found they help when applying for different jobs

There was a news story yesterday. Some Asian guy got rejected for a job, re-applied using a Welsh name and a worse CV - got an interview.
The company blamed "administrative error".
it depresses me that that still happens.
has it just come to court or something?
I once went for a day long interview thing in London. The interview finished about 5pm. I got my rejection letter the very next morning :( I'm pretty sure the last collection in that area was 3pm as well.
i am also being turned away by temp agencies for not having enough experience.
I got turned away from a mindless admin job at a newspaper printing place for having a degree; something along the lines of "you'll probably leave after a couple of months to a better job".
Well, I've had THIS mindless admin job for 2.5 years so the joke's on him.
they didn't do it to your face.
sucks all the same though
went to a temp place after i quit.
'so Mr Moran i see you have just quit at Capita after 3 years, is there any chance you might go back there as a temp?
'okay, i'm afraid we don't have any work for you'.
