I applied for an entry level for a company based in UK. I have been rejected and they did not give me any reason. Despite the fact that I have a PhD and 2 years work experience in the same role.
They said, We have concluded that the skillset and experience of some of our other candidates are a closer match to our specific requirements than your own, and we will therefore not be taking your application any further.
Then, they readvertised the job again.
I contacted the HR and asked why I have been rejected then? Or if it is a new role?
The reply came as, Due to the high volume of applications we receive, we have a policy to only provide feedback on applications that make it through to the formal interview stage. I hope this is understandable.
Could someone please tell me if it is possible that I have been rejected based on my name Despite the fact that I have the right to work in the UK?
And should I email them again?
