Here is a nice qualified applicant. Wow, this is the one. Oh wait, the application states he is 45 miles away...but it does say he will relocate at his own expense. Hrm, oh well, it is not worth the hassle calling him to see if he really meant that. |
*Files resume and application in the trash for safe keeping.*
Lets hire this applicant. Even though he is not very qualified, he is already nearby and thats really most important. Who wants the most qualified applicant, we want the quick fix.

And the letter reads:
Thank you for your interest in the Research Associate position that we posted on Opportunity Knocks. We were thrilled with the response (over 100 inquiries and counting) and confess that it took us longer than expected to give them the attention they deserved.View Comments
This week we have met with several of those prospects who appeared to offer the best fit with our situation. These first interviews have gone quite well, and we are very close to making an offer.
Thanks again for taking the time to get in touch. We wish you the best in your career.
