Discussion on: Is rejection for a job becoming more normal or...?

The problem I see is that companies are so quick to reject an applicant before they even speak to them. They expect applicants to meet an enormous list if technical requirement without taking the time to get to know the individual.

People can be taught technical skills but you can't really teach someone how to have strong work ethic and be a team player. Of course companies can't personally interact with every candidate but if they meet at least 70% of the technical skills I'd say they are worth at least a quick phone call. Just my 2 cents.
