    Or maybe it's you-you could have a reputation in the facility that makes you less then desirable. You may be the best nurse in the building but you can lack in other areas.
    ^This.

    If the NM was interested, as you have been working there previously....he/she would have come to you and said "Have you considered x or y" and prompted you to pursue those options for a position at a later date. I get the feeling you are a snippy person and that probably translates to your work, and you reputation precedes you.

    I disagree with you Kooky Korky if you are referring to HR. They are supposed assist all customers. Those customer are applicants and managers. The response was very toxic to it's recruitment mission.
    I don't think HR ever knows what the NM is looking for, because HR is not always comprised of nurses. Some recruiters just stick to the criteria they have been given by NM and may not recognize what exactly that means. They are never going to be able to provide feedback to every candidate because maybe the NM just doesn't "click" with that applicant. This isn't some person off the street, the OP worked at this facility and handier the unit, if the OP didn't think to ask the NM what would hep to strengthen them, HR may not be able to give them an answer because maybe it was a personality clash or they had someone else in mind for the position, but HR was never told, so how can they tell the candidate?

    Op, you were the one talking about how understanding you were re: setting up interviews, how much time it takes etc, so yes that gave me the impression you still had hope for THIS job now. After 3 months, it is time to move on (which was the point of my post)and no HR is not there to help you become a better applicant. They screen and pass along the applications that meet the NM criteria, sometimes not even doing that..

    I do find it rather funny, you calling them rude but don't see yourself as such. Pot meet kettle

    I bet HR doesn't consider applicants as "customers". They are job applicants, to be weeded out and the best sent on to the hiring manager. HR's customers are those who are relying on them to find employees.

    What are you basing this perception on?

    That may be so, Sweet.

    But, in reality, applicants are customers of the HR function.
