Jumping the Gun

You know what is wildly presumptuous? Adding me to your promotional email list before you invite me in for an interview. Also, adding me to your email list after not hiring me or even having the courtesy to reject me.

While I agree that in principle I have expressed interest in your organization, I feel like this is a really audacious marketing practice that I do not endorse.

When this happens when I have not heard from you at all, it makes me actually think less of the organization. It seems opportunistic to the point of being somehow predatory.

No, it’s just bad email marketing.
