Ever so often you stumble across an awesome resource and can't wait to share it. This week for me it was a website called - Almostgotit!
The name is perfect and speaks to all of us. If you think you have everything figured out, totally in charge of all around you, then this site may not be for you. For the rest of us who wonder about what's yet to be done and know there is more to learn, you will love the site as I do.
Last week there was a discussion on that blog about whether or not rejection letters should be emailed. Read the complete post here!
Here was my response:

Based on my work with jobseekers and my own experience, I think most people really appreciate hearing something, anything that gives them status and lets them know where they are.
I wish all jobseekers were “never hasty, cheap, or disrespectful” in their own job search. Unfortunately, that is not the case and too many people find it easy to apply for everything by hitting “submit”. Many don’t take the time to tailor a resume or write a meaningful cover letter.
Those people who clearly put their best forward and make it to a final pool of candidates most definitely deserve more than a standard, packaged email once the final candidate has been selected.
Your points are well taken though and email does have it’s challenges and is definitely not for everything.
