    No. I always visited and personally handed in my CV/application, and made sure they were aware I was interested. Even when they spouted crap like 'oh, this application is just a formality, i'm certain the job will be yours' - coming from a MANAGER, and still not hearing back is pretty lame.

    Seems like job hunting is as much BS in the UK as it is here in the US. :/

    Come to Belgium and you will get that sort of bull**** in spades. When you write a cover letter, state when you are likely to contact a company to have news. Phone back in a week or two to find it if they're interested and if you get a negative or a neutral reply just move on.

    in that case, there's really only a couple explanations (this from an American viewpoint); another applicant was genuinely better than you, your resume is not as good as you think, or you were discriminated against.
    it could just as easily be your age ("too young") as your gender.

    but who cares right? that's behind you, you landed a formal job, and from this point on it should be a lot easier for you to score future job interviews. because in the corporate world, like the entertainment business, you're only as good as your last hit.

    It's always good to ask when you should be expecting a call if you're accepted and then calling them if they fail to call you.

    Maybe it's because you have great breasts, the male employers probably fear that if they did hire you, other people will jut think you were hired for that reason. And that isn't an issue with your new non-lesbian female employer.

    Good work. I personally have found pharmacy to be very rewarding, and full of crazy people to tell your friends about.

    I make it a habit never to touch my wood in the name of a general, but just the same, good luck with the interview.

    Messed up after that last interview. Got another one this Thursday for an internship. This one should be good because it's with a company that does an all-in-one usb solution for booting computers.
