I just wanted to follow up. What's the decision schedule from here on?
Dear Articulate,I guess this means I won't bother applying for any more jobs in the UK. What's the point?
I was about to write you an e-mail; you will also shortly get mail fom the office. Unfortunately, I have not short-listed you for this position, depite the fact that I found your application very interesting. I got several reasonably strong applications from candidates from within the EU, and given that we could only appoint a candidate from outside the EU if there are no equivalent EU candidates, the chances of you getting a work permit would be slim even if we did appoint you.
I am very sorry that I couldn't be more positive.
Best wishes, Jocelyn
