Should I email/and or mail my resume into a job for which I rec’d an auto-response that I "did not meet criteria"?
I applied for a job for which I met all the criteria listed in the posting; however, I immediately received an automatic email noting that I did not meet “minimum criteria”. I am a bit baffled as to why I received this automated response as I feel I am very qualified. This is a large organization, so I cannot find an actual HR person to contact, nor do they have information listed for one. So I am wondering if I should respond to the automated email to try and convince them to take another look at my application and/or my resume and/or snail mail my resume and cover letter to their headquarters addressed to the HR department. Their on-line application process in conducted through Monster.com, so I am not sure if my application simply went into a black hole, and in addition, if they will even take a look at those applications that “did not meet minimum criteria”. Any advice is most appreciated.
