I recently got rejected from an opportunity just because I have experience 4 days less than a year. The company requires minimum experience of 12 months. In my resume I have put dates in front of experience section with only month and the year. I haven't mention exact joining date ( as I was not aware about a company can be really fussy about few days experience ). P.S. I haven't lied about anything, I just didn't mention the full details.
I have completed the technical interview and they offered me the place on the same day. When they verified my documents. They found i have less than a year experience i.e. 4 days less than a year. They said it is a company's policy.
I am surprised by the situation as the company is not considering my skills and ability to do the work and clearing the technical interview rather they are declining me for such a small reason.
My worry is, would it be any other reason for declining my application as this sound too lame to me and the company doesn't want to tell me the main reason. Shall I approach HR once again and ask them to negotiate?
