how quickly should you send job rejections?

A reader writes:

I’m a firm believer in following up with every single applicant, interviewed or not. When would you say is ideal time to send out a rejection letter?

I answer this question over at Inc. today, where I’m revisiting letters that have been buried in the archives here from years ago (and sometimes updating/expanding my answers to them). You can read it here.

    Ugh, the way my company sends rejections really grinds my gears. For instance, we had a position and had 20 applicants. 15 of them were absolutely not right for our company, 2 of them I’d like to refer to another division, and the last 3 we wanted to phone interview. We had to wait until the job ad was fully closed (meaning we offered someone the job *and* they accepted) before the HR system would send out the rejections. So even though we knew in 10 seconds that those 15 people weren’t right, we had to wait months for the system to reject them. I very nearly just sent out a “courtesy” email.

    1. Trout 'Waver*

      Those automated rejection e-mails are the worst. I’d rather get nothing, in all honesty. It’s pretty easy to tell you’re not getting the job if the posting has closed and you haven’t been contacted in any manner.

      1. hayling*

        I disagree. I like to know that they at least got my application and processed it.

        1. ian*

          Yup, plus I’d rather not have to continually check to see if the job posting has closed…

        2. Trout 'Waver*

          When I’m forced to enter everything into fields by hand into an automated applicant tracking software package, and I receive an automated response 3 months later when they finalize the hire, it gives me no knowledge or assurance that at any point a human looked at my application or processed it in any way.

          That automated message months after I’ve realized I’m not getting the job serves no useful purpose.

        3. KayDeeAye*

          I’d also much rather hear, even if it’s “Thanks but no thanks.” Those rejections don’t tell me much that I didn’t already know, of course, but at least they tell me that my application didn’t disappear, never to be seen again.

      2. Analytical Tree Hugger*

        Interesting. I prefer rejection emails (automated or otherwise) to radio silence, regardless of timing. Just because a job posting has closed doesn’t mean I’ve been rejected; sometimes, hiring takes way longer than expected. It’s an exception, but for what it’s worth, I’ve been invited to interviews two or three months after applying.

        If nothing else, it’s become funny to me to receive a rejection months after applying.

        1. Jdc*

          I received ten in one day even during this pandemic and then saying they desperately need workers in certain stores. On my birthday. Frankly I could’ve lived without any of them. And wow I can’t get a food or retail job since I haven’t done that in 20 years? What do people do when they are desperate and have to take something at a lower scale? We are just saving for fertility treatments and I really need to do it sooner than later due to my egg situation but it’s crazy to me that no one would hire me for anything like that.

          1. rayray*

            I honestly wonder if companies are just taking applications in but not actually planning to hire anybody right now. They probably just hit a button to send a canned response to you.

            1. PollyQ*

              That would be odd, and a total waste of their own time. US unemployment rate jumped from 5% to 20% in a matter of weeks. Many of those people were working in retail or food service, so it’s far more likely they hired someone with recent experience.

        2. Wendy Darling*

          I’m fine with timely automatic rejection emails, but if I get one of those six months after I applied for a job it’s pretty annoying — it’s like, thanks for reminding me I applied for that job and didn’t get it, now that I’ve completely forgotten it existed and moved on. :(

      3. Cobol*

        I’m the same as Trout. (For me, for jobs I don’t get a call about) Rejection emails are always a small unnecessary jab, whether they come right away, or months later.

      4. The Man, Becky Lynch*

        I prefer nothing at all myself, if I don’t hear back, I move on as soon as I send in a resume and cover letter. Then only if I hear back do I get any kind of “hope” up and that’s when I’d prefer a rejection come.

        I’ve never received an actual rejection notice after simply applying, that seems so odd to me and overkill.

        But I also assume if it didn’t go through, then the universe is saying I don’t belong there because I’m a big old kook. But I’m also not in a niche job by any means and I have no desire to work for any specific company, like so many others out there.

        1. SheLooksFamiliar*

          My job search officially began last week, and I know I have an uphill battle – I’ve been in corporate staffing for my entire career, I’ve held senior titles, and I’m 60 years old. Even pared down, my resume probably shows more experience than the people reviewing it.

          I’m networking like crazy because that’s how I usually hear about great roles, but I’m also applying to roles of interest here and there. My approach is simple: I assume I won’t hear a thing. If I get an automated decline later on, I don’t enjoy it – who likes getting rejected? – but I’m not surprised. If I get a request to interview, then I invest more time and interest in research and prep.

        2. Anon Anon*

          I’m with you. What I would say is that if I’ve interviewed then I expect to get a rejection email in a timely manner. Mostly because I have invested more in the hiring process. But, as long as I get an acknowledgment email that my application has been received then I don’t even need a rejection email. I figure if i don’t get a call for an interview in the first few weeks after submitting my application materials that I’ve been screened out.

        3. Another freelancer*

          I don’t mind receiving the rejection after applying, but I do mind if the rejection comes way too soon after filling out an applicaiton. I once received a rejection on, like, a Sunday within minutes of when I applied. Ouch!

          I try to put things out of my mind, too, after applying to a job. If I am contacted for the next step in the interview process, then that’s great. If I don’t hear anything, then I can’t dwell on it. For my own sanity, I have to keep moving on and look for another job.

      5. MissDisplaced*

        Yes of course you’ve figured that out if they never called!
        But I still appreciate a canned response that it’s closed and/or they’ve moved on with other applicants. Because sometimes they do keep running the job postings or haven’t taken them down yet.

        I’ve also been notified that the entire job was cancelled, which is good to know. You might think twice about applying to that company again if they’re doing that as it might imply they’re not financially stable or organized.

      6. Naya*

        I prefer getting some type of response. It seems more courteous. I always completely forget about an application after I submit it (as AAM suggests!) and would like them to at least acknowledge the end of the process.

    2. Vanilla Nice*

      I agree that it would make the most sense to send rejections in “waves,” but this requires a recordkeeping system to track when rejections are sent. I had to do some serious damage control a few years ago after my employer forgot to resend rejections to two finalists we interviewed for a major role but didn’t hire. Accidentally ghosting two good candidates because of a clerical error was *not* a good look. (This is in a small industry where everyone knows everyone and most highly qualified applicants who are geographically flexible will eventually get hired by a competitor).

      1. Libervermis*

        So many systems seemingly can’t handle that kind of tracking where an applicant is! and/or the people using the system don’t quite know how to use it. I got a rejection notice for the job I was actually offered and accepted because apparently the person sending the rejections could only find an “everyone” button (which sounds like user error to me…).

        Meanwhile my previous institution would send rejections in waves, so their system clearly could handle it, but a lot of departments chose to leave everyone on the hook for far longer than needed “just in case”. In case of what? They didn’t even rate a phone interview, do you think suddenly they’ll become a better fit in the next 8-12 week.

        In conclusion, bless all of you who send rejection notices in a timely manner to applicants. They definitely suck, but they suck less than silence, for me.

        1. noahwynn*

          I once received a rejection email for a job I started 7 months previously. Turns out someone was trying to clean up the system and sent it to everyone that applied for the position.

      2. Anon for this*

        Communicating with applicants was all handled by a single HR person and the hiring managers before we were acquired & worked fine (tho not scalable I’m sure) – now we have some huge system that this year sent a rejection letter AND an interview letter to one guy (he didn’t show up to the interview)… and then after we rearranged the interview for another day, he was somehow sent yet another rejection letter even though we actually offered him a job. Like.. what?? It was pretty embarrassing from our pov but all down to some admin errors elsewhere…

  2. Champagne Cocktail*

    I don’t mind a 24-48 hour rejection. It’s the ones that come within hours or minutes of me applying that get me upset.

    Like the OP, if I’m hiring, I respond to everyone. I also recognize it can be hard to differentiate instincts from snap decisions in relation to something that may not ultimately be relevant. If I find a resume I have a bad feeling about, I put it aside for a day and then read it before rejecting.

    1. dealing with dragons*

      yeah I got one in hours that was because I’m mostly familiar with javascript library A and they want people with javascript library B. like hot dang take a chill pill

    2. hayling*

      I think a lot of modern applicant tracking systems allow you to schedule a rejection email to send in the future. If I see that a candidate applied the same day I’m reviewing, I schedule it to send the next day.

      1. Kimberlee, No Longer Esq.*

        This is the feature that the ATS I use doesn’t have (at least at the free level) that I want the most. I used to use Greenhouse, and I could set that to default to sending 2 days after I hit reject, so I didn’t have to think about it. I miss that feature, but not enough to pay for it! :)

    3. MusicWithRocksIn*

      Yea – the ones within minutes where you know some automated system sent it out without any human contact and you’re wondering what box you checked wrong or what keyword you’re missing for a job that is an excellent match.

      1. Cardamom Bitters*

        and then you find yourself rewriting your resume using all the words from the latest bullshite bingo card hoping to trigger the system.

      2. voluptuousfire*

        Yeah, those are the rejections you get at like 1 am on a Sunday morning. I remember doing an app for a bank teller position and I got rejected at 11:30 at night on a Saturday likely because I failed the math test they gave as part of the application.

    4. TCO*

      I’ll never forget the time I got rejected instantly after submitting an application into an automated system. The very final screening question, after I had already put all of my info into their system and uploaded my customized resume and cover letter, asked whether I spoke a particular language (one spoken by a large immigrant community here, but very rarely spoken by someone without that heritage–so if it’s a requirement, it needs to be specifically called out).

      I don’t speak that language. The posting had never mentioned any need to speak that language. So to put in all of that time, get to the very end of the process, and then be instantly rejected for a qualification that was never once mentioned was definitely demoralizing.

    5. 867-5309*

      I have a specific day of the week when I look at all resumes. If someone applied within an hour of my window and they aren’t a fit, they would get an immediate rejection not. It’s a manual trigger and I did look at the resume, so quick rejections don’t always mean that no one even looked at your resume.

      1. 867-5309*

        It’s worth noting that applicants apply to our jobs by just uploading their resume and possibly answering 1-3 pre-screen questions, so it isn’t a cumbersome process where they are entering all of their information AND uploading a resume. We also don’t auto-reject based on the pre-screen questions – a person still looks at their resume.

        1. Manon*

          I think this is the most important part. It’s so incredibly frustrating to spend an hour filling out an online application in addition to time spent tailoring a resume and cover letter, only to get an automated rejection 5 minutes later.

    6. Roscoe*

      Yep. For me, if its at least the next business day I’m ok with it. But getting a rejection the same day as I applied just seems too quick. Especially because I wasn’t just applying to any random job. So while some jobs were technically reaching, 95% were jobs I was qualified for, at least based on the qualifications they listed. The problem often came because there were things they wanted and just didn’t list

      1. Stormy Weather*

        When that happens, I tend to think that there’s already an internal candidate and they’re just going through the motions.

    7. Rexish*

      Oh yeah, the minute you click send you get a rejection. Usually this means that some box wasn’t ticked the way they wanted. Fair enough id it is sometthing really specific like “do you speak fluent french” but when they are a bit more vague then it is annoying.

  3. TimeCat*

    I’d say it depends on the rejection. I agree with Alison on the immediate rejection. I’ve received a rejection on the train on the way home, for an interview that seemed to go really well, and I won’t lie that it stung. Made me think “was I really THAT bad?”

    My organization does wait a bit because we sometimes have our top choices go elsewhere (we hire out of school a lot so they’re usually doing multiple interviews) and we then go to the number 2 or so candidate. So if you’re a serious candidate we’re going to hold off rejecting until we know it’s definitely a no.

    1. HB*

      Yup, I once got a rejection when I was in the parking lot getting into my car after an interview. It was rough! Give it 24 hours so at least you can pretend your committee was thinking about it…

      1. Marny*

        Agreed. Let me believe that there was at least a real conversation about me rather than just a knee-jerk “nope”.

    2. Cobol*

      I got that once. I think once you talk to somebody it’s different (and agree with Alison that there’s nothing that will make everybody happy), but for the people who are instant nos, I’m in favor of not sending anything.

    3. KaciHall*

      I drove six hours for an interview for an AM position at another branch of the bank I had worked at for two years. It was moving back to my home state, in an area I loved, and I was good at my job. I had a degree in management, I moved to ‘prove myself’ at the second busiest branch in the country and had done well. I was sent a rejection email to my work email before I got in the next morning (because my boss only have me one day off for the interview – I drove six hours after work to get there, and drove six hours home after my interview), starting that I didn’t get the job because I didn’t have proper management experience. Another person had been hired whose only ‘management experience’ was being a bus supervisor on church trips.

      I literally turned in my two weeks notice two days later. It was so frustrating.

    4. juliebulie*

      Same thing happened to me. I’m glad they at least let me know I was rejected, and I can live with the fact that they knew in my interview that they wouldn’t hire me – but it sucked to know that I was out of the running before I even got home.

  4. MissDisplaced*

    I think at least 24-48 hours is about right. I personally want to know quickly so I can move on.
    But I really hate these online systems that will reject you in like the space of like 4 hours.
    Especially if it took me over an hour to attach my resume and then still fill out your online application that included my whole damn employment history, listing every address, phone number and manager I ever had? Plus also writing out lengthy answers to complex questions about marketing theory? Like really, am I supposed to believe anyone actually bothered to look at this application in 4 hours time? Grrr!

    I’ve also been on an in-person interview where I got rejected before I even drove home!
    I throw people off sometimes because I graduated in 2013 with my masters, but I am in my 50’s. I’m pretty sure they expected somebody younger. LOL! You can so tell.

    1. Megumin*

      I got an instant rejection once that came within 15 minutes of submitting my application. I’m not sure what triggered the auto-rejection, because it was for a job with the exact same title as the one I currently had, and I met every single qualification. However I was pretty annoyed because not only was the application system cumbersome (I had to restart it MANY times), but it included an 18-page behavioral screening questionnaire that had super ridiculous questions, that really did not pertain to the job at all. The last question on it was open-ended, and said “Do you feel this questionnaire was an accurate assessment of your skills and experience?” By the time I reached that question, I was so annoyed and frustrated that I answered it honestly and put “No, I think it was complete joke.” So maybe that’s why I got instantly rejected?…

      1. Stormy Weather*

        I applied at a business that sent me a cognitive AND a behavioral assessment. The rejection came within hours after they were submitted. I sometimes wonder which one I failed.

  5. Cordoba*

    I don’t have any way to predict what a job candidate wants in terms of timing, and am therefore inclined to err on the side of giving them information as soon as it is available vs arbitrarily holding off to make them feel like I spent more time considering their application than I actually did.

    I sure wouldn’t want a potential employer to not give me relevant information just because they think I *might* be upset if it arrives too quickly.

    IMO, share what you know when you know it and I’ll manage my own feelings, thanks.

    1. Anchee*

      “IMO, share what you know when you know it and I’ll manage my own feelings, thanks.”

      Yes! A thousand times, yes.

    2. Putting the "pro" in "procrastinate"*

      Yes — discussion threads on this topic always show that people have different preferences about how much information they want, and when they want it — a hiring manager can’t divine each candidate’s preference. The best thing to do is strive to be polite, professional, and respectful of the candidates’ time.

      As to that last, some of the complaints in this thread have been about instant rejections after cumbersome application processes, and I fully understand why that would be maddening!

    3. consultinerd*

      Agreed! A fast rejection feels bad but it’s better than having a false hope that an opening might be available when a decision has already been made.

      I get that a same-day automated rejection after spending hours on a complicated application is especially galling and disheartening. But if you’re getting screened out before even reaching a real human, that’s important info–maybe you’re missing keywords that the system filters on, maybe you’re applying for roles that require more experience than you have, maybe you’re entering some info incorrectly. Obviously, this kind of automated screening sucks as an applicant, but if you have to deal with it you might as well be getting feedback on whether you’re getting through the first set of filters or not.

    4. Kimberlee, No Longer Esq.*

      I agree, but with the caveat that it usually pays to wait a day or two because otherwise candidates will make a lot of assumptions. Like consultinerd in this thread, assuming that a rejection very soon after application means that you were not reviewed by a human, and that that’s good info to have. It’s an easy and probably accurate assumption to make, but it also might not be true.

      I recently made the mistake of sending a rejection before noon on the day after the applicant had applied (and they had applied in the evening). They sent an email to me about how they assumed it must have been a mistake, and they wanted to be reviewed by a real human. The issue was, they had already been reviewed, by myself as well as by a colleague. We’d just happened to sit down together that morning to review applications! And it sucks to have to write “I’m sorry, but we really did review you and we really did reject you”, so I now wait at least 2 days just to spare myself from that conversation!

      1. CEMgr*

        I’m hiring right now, and I often know within 60 seconds of opening an application whether I want the candidate to move forward or not. I used to give an instant rejection, but based on AAM insight as to how people often feel it reflects disregard for them, I will take the extra effort to mark them for rejection days later or next time I’m in our recruiting system. (The system is not very flexible or user-friendly, so this is extra effort for me and may lead to me delaying excessively.) Our application process is easy – if the candidate already has a profile in Indeed, it’s just a few clicks and answering a few Yes/No questions.

        I would like to note that I often “reject” people while also thinking “They don’t fit my role as well as 7 other people, but they would be so awesome in an XYZ type of position!” There’s just no way for the candidate to know that, though.

  6. knitter*

    Thank you for sending emails, even if it is a rejection. I wish I kept data on my last job search. I’d guess at least 50% or more of the jobs I applied for never sent any response. Not even an automatic “this posting has been closed”.

    Though, that said, the two situations I was most miffed at a rejection, I did get the automatic “this posting has been closed” email. One of those two I had spent 10+ hours on job related tasks and interviewing, so I expected a direct email. The other I had asked HR questions about a personality test (data storage, access, and purpose) required before I could schedule the interview they offered and never got a response. Then I got a form rejection sent to the people whose applications didn’t get to interview stage. So I guess you’re never going to win with rejections. I was happy to get closure most of the time, but even when I did, I wasn’t happy with the way the rejection was conveyed.

  7. nuri*

    I once received a rejection for an internal position within 3 hours of interviewing. I was just about to write my thank you note when I got the email. That really stung, because I thought it went well. But, it actually turned out well, because I was able to pivot my thank you email into a request for feedback.

    That feedback has been some of the best of my life, and I’ve often asked that leader for advice. And they were able to say that after meeting with me, they liked me and for a position that interfaced with my current department, I’d have been a top contender — but I didn’t have a specific skill set they needed.

    Immediate rejections after interviews should always come with actual non-boilerplate reasons.

    1. TechWorker*

      So, I can see that might be reasonable for internal interviews.

      But if you interview 20 people in a day & your notes say things like ‘not convinced bright enough’, ‘failed to hold a conversation’ or ‘gave off a distinctly creepy vibe’ then I’m not sure there’s always a way to turn them into polite constructive criticism…..

  8. JekyllandJavert*

    For me it depends on the stage at which I get rejected. If I get rejected directly within a couple hours of applying, it’s pretty clear that it went through some sort of automated filter and was basically systematically rejected or if I just don’t hear anything back, it’s not as big a deal.

    If I’ve had an interview and get rejected within a couple hours, that stings, and makes me wonder just how terribly I must have done. If I don’t hear back at all, then I get annoyed that they didn’t have the courtesy to let me know I was no longer in the running after I had invested time in preparing for the interview, not to mention the interview itself.

  9. Bookworm*

    You should send them, if only to let the candidate know. I’ve received rejections within an hour of interviewing and once got an offer to interview for a similar job in another location before receiving the rejection from the original.

    But the absolute worst are the ones that never send anything and never acknowledge any follow-up messages. It’s extremely irritating to have put up the effort to prepare, the time to prepare, and money if it requires travel (and maybe I’ll decide to get lunch depending on the time) to never hear anything.

    These things are uncomfortable and I’m not sure if there’s a good timeline (it’s a little weird to get it like 2 months after I applied). But I appreciate that you’re willing to follow-up with candidates, whether they interview or not. It’s always a good way to give them closure and let them know they can move on.

  10. CupcakeCounter*

    A friend of mine works in internal recruitment/HR for a large company. She will write the rejection email and then schedule it to send in 3 business days. She will hold back a rejections to finalists who the hiring manager would be happy with if the first choice candidate declined the offer or failed any of the pre-employment screenings (background check, drug screenings, etc…).

  11. Ainuvande*

    I hardly ever comment, but want to say thank you to the letter writer for sending rejections to everyone! I loved knowing one way or another when I was last job searching. I will say that waiting 24 hours before rejecting someone (or at least most of a day) is kinder, because you feel like they took the time to look at you.

    OTOH, when I worked retail I would often only have one (or two if I was lucky) day a week I could sit down and look at applications, have phone calls and schedule interviews, and check references. Sometimes that day and time were an hour after the person has submitted their application. I read it, but especially if they wanted something completely unattainable (unhelpful hours with manager-level pay comes to mind) they would get that rejection notice super quickly after submitting their application. It probably sucked for them, but it wasn’t anything more than bad timing.

  12. Chili*

    I feel like 48-72 hours really is good. There will always be people mad about rejection, but 48-72 is plenty of time to read, review, and reflect on an application, resume, and cover letter. It’s also enough time to thoughtfully reflect on an interview. It’s also a fast enough turnaround that candidates aren’t haven’t been hung up on the possibility of the job for a terribly long time. Obviously there are factors that play in– like other candidates who can’t come in for an interview until a later date or you’re waiting for more applications– but the key with that is to communicate some sort timeline. What I hate most about applying to jobs is that as a candidate, you are just expected to be okay with whatever amount of time the employers need for the process but that’s generally not true in the reverse.

    1. Stormy Weather*

      Well said. I’ve never known anyone to be happy about a rejection (though I have been relieved at one or two), but getting it over with soon, or at the very least in the time frame they gave you at the interview, is simple courtesy, in my not so humble opinion.

  13. ThisColumnMakesMeGratefulForMyBoss*

    Serious question…who has time to send a response to every single applicant? Is this a company that doesn’t have a lot of applicant traffic? I expect nothing more than an automated “we got your application” response when I submit an application, and I think those who expect more are unrealistic. I mean, if you have the time and really want to let everyone know what’s going on that’s great, but it seems unnecessary.

    1. Chili*

      I don’t know for sure if the LW meant an actual employee sends a unique response to every applicant; I took it to mean every applicant gets responses somehow, even if automated or form letter email, which I think is reasonable.

      I think the expectation of a response also has to do with how much effort it takes to fill out the application. When I was applying to service industry jobs where most applications were like, “Do you have a pulse and valid form of ID?,” I didn’t expect much in terms of responses. It was really nice to get some sort of update, but I also wasn’t mad when I didn’t get one from some jobs. When I was applying to jobs in my current field, not getting any sort of rejection/update really pissed me off because every application asked for so many things! If I have to write some essays, take a cognitive test, a behavioral test, and do a coding challenge– yes, I will think a company sucks if I hear nothing back in a somewhat timely manner.

    2. Kimberlee, No Longer Esq.*

      If you have significant applicant volume, there are Applicant Tracking Systems you should probably invest in that make sending rejections very easy and quick. And some such systems are totally free.

      Most allow you to send rejections immediately and automatically after you review their application and hit “reject.” Or, if you prefer, you can filter for the ones you want to reject, then click “select all” and “email all” and send whatever email you want to that particular group. Super easy.

    3. Stormy Weather*

      It doesn’t take up much time to create an email template for a rejection and less than 30 seconds to add someone’s address to it and either hit SEND or schedule it.

      An acknowledgement for ‘we received your resume’ should be standard. It’s good business because it means people won’t be calling and emailing to see if it was received. I think. Sending the rejection in a reasonable amount of time should be the standard, in my opinion. It’s also good business to do so because people will talk down a company that doesn’t do this.

    And if you are one of those odd companies that still send postal mail rejections, don’t do what a company did to me. I drove directly home from a half day interview, picked up my mail and the rejection letter was there. Until they went out of business, I made sure to tell all my job seeking acquaintances ahout their poor behavior.

    I’m probably in the minority, but I’d want the rejection to come as soon as I’ve been rejected, whether that’s weeks or minutes after I’ve applied.

    I like having closure, and dislike having open possibilities hanging over my head. That was especially when I was searching for my first post-college job, as a candidate with very little experience, by casting a large net. I was expecting a very high rejection rate, but didn’t like the uncertainty when employers don’t get back to me. Being rejected was disappointing, but being notified of the rejection was kind, and allowed me to not worry about that position anymore.

    I got fired once by the guy digging through his emails so he could send me a rejection email saying they hired someone else. I didn’t mind. He wasn’t fond of paying me on time or the complete amount due so I was fine with getting fired for asking for my paycheck.

    I think the order is:
    Rejection 24hr-2 weeks later (assumes no contact/updates in between)
    Instant rejection.
    Mailing them a glitter bomb.
    Announcing on social media the candidate is a loser.

    Seriously ghosting is the worst. It means I have to check my email and spam daily to make sure I dont miss an interview invite while you may have rejected me weeks ago, or maybe in 6 months you change your mind (this has happened to me and I took the job) or even years later (also happened but they called me in a huff because I did not answer their email within a day! Dude I’ve moved on).

    Ghosting is the worst.
