I’ve only been hiring students for the fitness center for a year, but already it’s noteworthy that I’ve never gotten two applications from the same person. That is, nobody has ever asked me for a job twice.
No second e-mail. No second application. No second time stopping me in the hallway. The first rejection seems personal, and it seems permanent.
It’s pushy to ask for a job a second time, but it’s also remarkable because nobody else does it.
