Reapply to a firm?

Postby Anonymous User » Mon Sep 16, 2013 4:48 pm

I mailed my stuff to a firm and got a ding email that said they weren't currently accepting applications for next summer and to check back next year. Well fast forward two weeks, and now they've popped up on my school's symplicity as a resume collect. So either 1) the ding was just a meaningless form letter and they're not interested in me or b) their hiring needs have changed. Is it inappropriate to apply again through the resume collect?

What's the worst they can say, "no?"

In the time it took to make this thread you could have already applied

I mean, sure, I guess the worst they could say is "no," but they're going to say no. They gave you that message because they want to see your grades improve and see you get positive reviews and an offer from some other firm first.

They probably don't even really want to talk to him next year. That's form language.

Probably not, but I wouldn't go quite that far. Plenty of firms send out both "encourage" and "discourage" form letters. The "encourage" ones aren't totally pointless.
