I have recently applied for a few jobs through recruitment agencies and i was left a little unimpressed with how they handled my applications
In one case the job was advertised with a note "recent graduates welcome", I'm 48 yo and while i ticked most of the boxes in the list of requirements I was told that my application wasn't going through. The ad has since then been amended, they removed the note about new graduates and added an additional requirement that disqualifies me although the job is entry-level and skills can be acquired quickly
In another case i was told that my application would not be submitted to the company with no explanation at all. I had most of the required skills but no feedback was provided as to why my application wouldn't be submitted.
If an applicant meets most of the requirements can an agency reject an application without feedback? is there any tool that protects jub-hunters from being discriminated against and not been given a fair chance?
