Conundrum of Candidates' Conjecture

Although I understand how and why it happens, it is not in my nature to make assumptions, jump to conclusions or surmise. My analytical bent prevents me from forming critical decisions or taking action without adequate evaluation of tangible evidence or factual data.

That proclivity has served me…

Do Candidates want ‘Dear John’ rejections to applications?

Candidates Dear John_45835531
