I recently applied for that audio designer job at blue tongue.

I recieved an e-mail back from them with the usual "unfortunately on this occasion you have been unsuccessful" line.

That didn't bother me.

What did bother me was the person "Andrew" greeted and thanked my email name, not me real name which was on my cover letter and resume. that can only mean that my application and showreel wasn't even looked at obviously. it took some 35 odd hours to put together 2 demos, and i did not at all appreciate being patronized by the recruiter who explained that they viewd my application closely but found a more "experienced applicant"

That doesn't mean that your demo wasn't looked at. All that means it that you got the same automated email as everyone else who wasn't successful, and someone put your Email address in the "NAME" catagory.

A few pieces of advice, if you are willing to take it.

Why is your email name different to your real name? I don't know your circumstances, but it sounds like it has the potential to look extremely unprofessional.

Also, this is an industry where you don;t want to read too much into rejection letters. Barely anyone I applied to bothered to even write one when I was applying. That doesn't mean that they didn't even look at my application - it just meant that they found someone better suited and don;t have the resources to apply.

Also its best not to risk burning bridges by publicly venting on a forum like this, even anonymously.
