we really appreciate your interest

Thank you for your application for the xxx position at yyy. We really appreciate your interest.

We wish we had the opportunity to personally respond to everyone, but with hundreds of applicants for the position, that would be a very difficult and time-consuming task. Please know that we look at every single applicant holistically and thoughtfully. We review professional backgrounds in resumes, potentially transferable skills, recommendations and summaries on LinkedIn profiles, blogs, portfolios (if applicable), and several other factors. Most important of all, we're carefully reading answers to the online questions, which are extremely important to us. 

We are still collecting applications, and will contact you should we decide to proceed with an interview. If we feel that you will be someone who is set up for success in this position long-term, will make a truly valuable contribution, and have the potential to be a great fit and happy in the role, you will hear from us. If other candidates better meet that criteria and/or if this particular position isn't the right fit, we'll absolutely keep you in mind for other opportunities in the future. 

In the meantime, we wish you the best of luck in your search.
