I applied in a company for the job role of Associate Software Engineer fresher on 20th September with an employee referral. Even though the job requirement matched my resume it wasn't shortlisted. It was shown in the company website that in case you do not get a response within 10 days, it would mean that your profile does not fit our current requirements. I didn't get any response from the company yet. Two hours ago they posted for the same job role in LinkedIn.
The recruitment was for 2021-2023 batches. For 2022 batch or older batch, do HRs usually prefer candidates who have done internship or any relevant course and reject those who don't have any work experience? Is there any common practice regarding the same? In the requirements section of the job which I applied it was said that any internship/certificate/project will be considered an advantage?
