Just curious: How do you know how many candidates they’ve rejected?
Someone wrote recently on the forum that they had collected 70 applications!
Just kept an eye on the listing and calculated the number of times it went from reviewing to being open again.
You are so wrong! I get people saying they can’t do my dates but “ please keep me in mind for the future” all the time. Or applying with zero references when my ad states I will not consider sitters with out references( from bad experience this is necessary). People seem to think they are entitled to sits and wasting other’s time. It is a two way street - there needs to be honor on both sides.
Exactly this. I’m not having someone with no reviews come for 1-2 months. My home, my choice. There is nothing rude about it. I also send personal notes to each applicant. We all have to start somewhere getting reviews. But, longer sits require proven experience.
Why is it rude to want to find the best applicant for a sit? This is the only work around for a policy many are opposed to.
Holy cow. Might need to go with a professional sitter instead.
Let’s all try to remember to keep our responses kind and courteous.
