I was appalled to read a recruitment advertisement (DW 18 April) which stated: “Sorry, but we will only reply to those who we shortlist for interview.”

It takes a long time to put together a job application, yet most applicants to this company won’t even merit the courtesy of a reply. If they think so little of the vast majority of the people in the job market, you have to ask yourself whether they are worth working for. After all, it takes little effort to send out a “thank you for your application” letter.
