so i applied for a job before christmas. i was looking for more jobs to apply for recently, when i happened across this company's website, and noticed that they'd changed their website and the name of the person to whom applications should be addressed had changed (as had, of course, the structure of the email addresses etc). because of this, and because i hadn't had my application acknowledged, i thought 'oh, i better email them and make sure they got my application'. i got a reply from the person whom i had originally emailed saying that they'd got my application, had acknowledged it, and that the instructions for applying hadn't changed. this is clearly not the case. the instructions had changed (if only slightly), and i hadn't received anything back (although, of course, email does get lost).
is it just me, or is this incredibly infuriating. i mean, i felt i had to send an email back pointing out that the instructions had actually changed (and telling them that i hadn't received any acknowledgement), because otherwise i look like a bit of an idiot, but at the same time i don't want to seem rude or contradictory or argumentative. tried to find a middle ground, but i fear i just sounded like a pompous twat instead.
this thread has no purpose except to vent.
