I am sometimes stunned and saddened by the lack of sincerity and basic manners that SC have. After an on campus interview I was told that in the next couple of weeks a decision will be made and I would be notified about it one way or another. After a month without hearing anything, I assumed that I was passed on but I wanted to make sure that this is the case. I emailed the chair, asking politely if they already hired someone or if they are still waiting for someone to respond, but never got any answer. And this is after the chair was very accessible prior to the visit. Is it only me thinking that it is a lack of professionalism? Why are some people so rude and don't have the courtesy (or should I say the courage to tell the truth)? I don't mind being rejected but sometimes I feel that our field in filled with so much rudeness. One day SC are so nice to you and the next day they ignore you altogether.
I apologize for the rant but incidents like that sometimes make me wish I was outside the academia (I know, I know, it probably happens everywhere).
