I have applied for a job in a big company and was rejected in 5 days with a typical template answer of "we regret other candidates had better profiles fitting the job". So, I can guess they have tons of resumes coming from everywhere and have to find a quick way to scale it down to a few resumes for further processing. However, based on a few reasons I want to apply again for the exact same position:
- The job advertisement is still on the website, so technically it's possible to apply.
- I found an internal connection to the company (an old colleague) which I can use as the internal reference in my new application. In fact, they dedicated a specific reference field in their online application form. So, it is important to them.
- Just 1-2 days ago, I have obtained more precise information about what exactly they need for this job, and I can say that my CV and its skill-set was tailored not in a really relevant way considering what they specifically need for the job. But I can organize it much better now and make it really to the point to show what I have to offer them professionally.
But, in the end, I wonder if they have already blacklisted me in their rejection list and as soon as they see my application they will hit the reject button? Or they obtained a bias now from my profile, or maybe they won't even notice that in their tons of applications.
So, is it worth trying or is it a definite waste of time?
