I have applied to several jobs using AVUE. This system is completey automated and lacking in any real people to talk to. Even their "Avue Chat" is automated programed with set responses to spacific key phrases. You could be the most quailfied person in the world for a certain job and not be considered simply because an automated service decides you are not qualified for one reason or another. One such reason would be because you dind't use certain key words in your statements or 5 page long KSA. Even if you answered a KSA making you look like God if you didn't use certain programed words that you are scored on than you don't get considered. This is BS. On the other hand you could type a bunch of jebirish but as long as you include the key words you'll get scored and considered. What ever happened to submitting a resume? Interviews? Face to face meeting with potential hires?? This whole system has become a zombie line of comeplete and utter lifelessness. I'll tell you why the hireing market is dead. because people don't know how to APPLY or employers don't know how to INTERVIEW.
I applied for a job2 months ago. i followed up with the employer several times to express my intrest and willingness to move for work. Avue is supposed to update you on the status of a job. I was out of work for a week due to a surgery that i had. upon returning to work i followed up with the job i applied for. I was informed that the interviews had already been conducted and a selection was made. WTF? i never revieved any information from Avue informing me of such. I contacted AVUE, they stated it was an HR issue. I contacted HR, they stated it was an AVUE issue. I contacted the hireing authority and they told me i wasn't even on the list for consideration. HR and Avue assure me i was. A day later i get an email from Avue stating,
"Your application for the subject position has been evaluated. You were found to be eligible for the position and your name was referred to the selecting official for consideration. The selecting official or someone from the Human Resources Office will contact you if necessary to arrange an interview or to obtain additional information.If you need assistance concerning a particular vacancy, please refer to the vacancy announcement and contact the person named there.

What?? how is that when i was just told by the hiring official that i wasn't even on the list for consideration??? 2 days later i receive another email
