I applied for a job back at a large software company back in December and got an email from HR saying that I would get a reply within 4 weeks.
I never received any reply and I am fairly certain now that the job went to someone else. I now see that there is a new opening in the same company (yet different department) that is interesting to me and I would like to apply for it.
However, I am worried why my original application in December didn't get any feedback. Should I
- Contact HR and politely ask what happened
- Contact the group leader directly and ask him
- Leave it and focus on the new opening, maybe contact the group leader for the new department and let her know of my concerns and ask if I can send the application to her directly?
At the end of the day, I don't want to give the wrong impression, yet I want to make sure that my application actually gets read.
