Why recruiter HR is rude and rude

Is it rude to ask when a position will be available again?

For 25 years in IT, I've had the experience that it is always the job of the applicant to demonstrate persistence when looking for a job.

Don't expect the HR department, hiring manager, recruiter, or anyone else to contact you when a position becomes available again. Even if they tell you they will, the person doing it is the exception rather than the rule. That's not to say the attitudes world is full of idiots. On the contrary, they are usually capable when overloaded.

I was on an interview panel a few years ago where a position was only open for a few days. 35 candidates have applied. In 2011, a friend of mine who is a lawyer applied for a position as a corporate attorney. The position was only open for a few days and the company has over 900 applicants from all over the United States. In the past few years, Boeing has implemented a candidate screening process that is highly computerized and automated because so many candidates are applying. Boeing actually goes to job fairs and worksource teaching a class on how to apply to Boeing.

You have to do everything you need to and feel right in order to stand out from the crowd. That said, don't become a pest. Use your judgment and ask direct questions if necessary. "Is it okay if I get in touch with you in a month to ..."

Track emails. I would leave out Happy Holidays just in case someone is annoyed that you don't explicitly state which holiday they are celebrating.

Courtesy and respect go a long way. An employee in a previous job told me the rule of always, sometimes and never. Always say thank you, sometimes say please, never say # $ @!
