I recently applied for a graduate internship. The candidate specification required a recent degree (2013,2014,2015). I graduated in 2012 but decided to apply anyway.
I received an email offering an interview. After accepting it, however, I was told that because of the age of my degree I am not eligible.
This is completely understandable but I am dismayed by this as the job did seem like a perfect fit for me. How do I suggest that the employer makes an exception for me and at least offers me an interview?
