Thanks.  I hope so.  It's been a heck of an expensive week.  One of those where so many expenses seem to happen at once and everything breaks down (kitchen appliances mostly) and my clothes fall apart (my left shoe's sole fell right off and I split the crotch in my jeans when kneeling down to pick up a coin I had dropped... lucky my shirt was long enough to cover up that area til I could get home).  Haven't got a lot of money left after all this and most of the money I did have was still left over from that 1412 I won on the lottery last july.

Starting to wonder if they got my email and CV I sent two weeks ago. I don't think I typed the address wrong.  Maybe paranoid.

I went for an interview there once, and they went completely silent afterwards. Another time I contacted them a fair amount of years later when they were actively hiring and I was more skilled and experienced. They said I should come in for another interview, then went totally silent again before it was arranged.  :n:  Since all that, I've got to know a couple of people who've worked there, and I don't think either left on good terms, unfortunately. I hope they've resolved their HR issues, but I personally wouldn't make any big plans that involved counting on it.

If I didn't get the job I would just like to know.  Some confirmation.  I'm trying to find a whole new life for myself, not just a job, so it's a biiig deal.

Prod em? Gently. Could be your application drowned in a million others. I think there's a big rush of people applying for these jobs, qualified or not.

From what I've seen, I've been constantly bothered by the thought that some people just don't know talent when it hits them right in the face. I hope the guys behind Nitrome aren't the sort to not be able to recognize good artists so all artists in essense look the same.

Sadly, from all my experience, no answer at all is the most common answer.
I never had HR issues with Nitrome myself, but it is very rare that people thank you for your application or let you know that you have been unsuccessful.
My guess is that most places will only reply if you get the job.

It's not bad practice to send a follow-up email asking as to the status of your application.
