Well, that's a record

Just under 24 hours after applying for a position:
Hi Carl,

At least it's a response. From (apparently) an actual human. And a quick one. That's better than a lot of companies. (Not, mind you, that I didn't earn some bad karma on the acknowledging people's resumes front when I was on the other side of the desk. I swear on all that's holy that if I am ever again in a management job, I will reply to every single resume that comes in for a job I've advertised. Even the ones I toss aside unread because of grammar or typos.)
