I participated in a procedure for a position, and I pass an online first-look-assessment of my cv and cover letter. I took exams and then I gave an interview. I thought I gave a good impression at the interview and I still think it after the rejection of my application with a very politely mail. I think the problem is my very small work experience but if there is a shortcoming on my knowledge I want to know if it is possible. We speak about a software developer with applied mathematics knowledge position.
The answer from HR it was this:
We appreciate your skills and qualifications, as they came through via your CV, the online assessment and the personal interview and would like to thank you for your time in taking part in all these stages. However, these did not match exactly this specific position's requirements.
We will therefore not proceed further with your application, but we would encourage you to further your knowledge and experience and you may apply again in the future for similar roles that are of interest to you.
We wish you best of luck in your next career steps..
Now I am wondering if it is appropriate to send an e-mail to get some more feedback of my application. Is it offensive to send such an e-mail? One the one hand I think HR manager will think that it is "sensitive" information the details of a decision and must be kept inside the company and the members take that decision. On the other hand, I think it shows interest.
So let me know your opinion, it good to send an e-mail to get some feedback more specific or not?
I don't want to ruin my relationship with HR and the company because I admire this company and I would love to work there. Surely I want to re-apply to another job opening relative to my interests.
