I found an interesting research position up at Harvard’s JFK School, and spent about an hour putting together a cover letter for it.
When I finally submitted it, and filled in all of my information, I got the following message:
This Requisition is no longer open. Please search again.
Thanks. I have a sneaking suspicion this was there all along, but it begs the question: If the position is no longer open, then why is it still listed???
Worst of all, I was given no feedback as to whether my resume was submitted anyway or not. Human factors, people!
