If they reject you afterwars and you know you are good, their loss. You will find another thing.
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
Reality check - maybe you need to improve your skills, or only apply for jobs that you're qualified for.

New secretary? Beware the double application form. Since you filled out the first one ...
IF you have to go through that again, for instance, she hands you a form which you've already filled out, ask to see the first one and say "I have some information to add to it". IF it is the actual record (which is what you want really) ... take it and proceed to your seat to "fill it out/alter it".
Spill coffee on it and smudge chocolate bar (if you have one; consider THIS tip a warning). Go back and explain the problem and ask for a brand new application form.
Chances are you've got your original now plus a new form ... head for the in-door.
Leave. Run past security. Exit building.
Technically, you haven't been rejected and you've, for all intents and purposes, added to the list of things you've done, snatched your personal information from the talons of a bird who file-pads for a living and is now failing at her job. AND you can now deal with rejection and have something positive to think about ... why rejection can be so sweet!
He is stuck with 17,700 bottles of sanitizer, after Amazon terminated his listing for price gouging. Apparently his is just one of tens of thousands listings zapped for the same reason by Amazon. Good ole Amazon!
Over the next three days, Noah Colvin took a 1,300-mile road trip across Tennessee and into Kentucky, filling a U-Haul truck with thousands of bottles of hand sanitizer and thousands of packs of antibacterial wipes
That's the problem. They cleaned out an entire region of supplies that will help mitigate the spread of the virus. If you don't discourage these activities (especially on what is probably the most accessible market worldwide), it will incentivize more people to participate. More regions will be without needed supplies and the pandemic will be worse.
It's obvious why the pandemic would be worse locally since mitigation supplies aren't available. But there's also a secondary problem, which is that the spread would not be entirely local. If people around you are getting sick and you aren't symptomatic yet, you may very well travel in order to procure those supplies for yourself, further spreading the virus.
Ok. So stores should have multi-level pricing on any object that they start to have a run. First three bottles $2.99. Next 3 $30, greater than 6 - $300. Problem solved. But then everyone would scream price gouging by the stores when what in fact is happening is ensuring that runs don’t happen and everyone gets a chance to buy a reasonable amount. And people would still see the stores as the villains.
What Amazon has done is guarantee that anyone who does have a supply won’t be able to get rid of any of it so there will be an even smaller supply available to purchase.
If you can't laugh at yourself - ask me and I will do it for you.
