I am qualified for the position for which I applied. Why wasn't I contacted?
There are many reasons that candidates aren’t selected to continue with the interview process. The job market is busy right now, and we often receive dozens or hundreds of applications for positions.
- We screen on qualifications, so while you may be minimally qualified you might not be one of the most qualified candidates
- At times, business needs change and openings are modified or cancelled
- We believe in hiring from within, so often we choose an internal candidate
- You may have applied late in the process, when interviews are already well underway
Opportunities are changing all the time at Savage. Even if you aren’t considered for a specific role, we encourage you to continue to apply for other positions for which you are qualified.
