Is it common that when sending an application through the company's website, they simply don't respond? Should I consider this a sign of rejection, or that something went wrong and my application got lost? The application was through their website and there was an automated confirmation email that contained no contact details where I could inquire.
Consider a case when there was an ad for the position, and I believe I'm clearly qualified for it, so I don't see any obvious reasons for rejection, and I'd expect to at least be notified if I'm rejected.
I haven't worked in industry before and I'm not very familiar with the North American workplace culture.
