Okay so I've been looking for a job that'll work around my schooling and to help me stay in school. I apply to places that are hiring and I call them to check on the status of my application. I get told that they'll call me back. Most of the time I never get a call back and I wonder why managers never do what they say. If you're going to tell someone that you'll call them then why not do it, even to tell them that you found someone that better fits your needs?
Some companies that often require a little more work experience are at least nice enough to send me a letter in the mail stating that they didn't select me because I didn't fit their requirements for a specific job title. At least I know not to keep applying without knowing they aren't interested in learning more about me and my experience.
My real question is
Are managers trained to not even call people they don't wish to interview?
Any information and advice is greatly appreciated.
