Slowest ever response to a job application?
I suddenly got an email out of the blue today:
Dear Sir / Madam:
We have received your application, an interview will be arranged for shortlisted candidates. Thank you for your interest to join our team!
Initially I thought it was spam (although the normally good Gmail spam system hadn't marked it as spam), then I saw the company name, and saw they were based in Macau.
A quick search for that company's name in my email found one outgoing message to them, applying for a job, dated December 8th, 2006! Today is February 19th, 2008.
