Resume black holes

Has this ever happend to you ? You see a job posting on-line at a corporate, government or other organizational website that fits you perfectly. You click on the “Submit Resume” button and then eagerly await a response. You are so well qualified how could they not contact you to come in for an interview ?

But then hours, days and weeks pass and one is left to wonder what happened. The job that you were so well suited for and applied for has yielded a barren harvest. So what happens ? Almost all of the time we will never find out but the possible scenarios are endless.
