Default Anybody applying to jobs but never getting any kind of response?

Wondering if it's "just me" or if it's a more common thing...
I have applied to probably 3 dozen jobs in the last few months and for the vast majority I have not gotten any kind of response whatsoever - not an acknowledgement of application, not a simple rejection, nothing.

Out of the ~36 applications I think I've gotten maybe 3-4 actual replies.

Incredibly frustrating to me, and RUDE in my opinion - is this standard practice?

Yep. Since it's so easy to apply for a job over the internet, employers get swamped. Got 83 resumes for the last job I posted. I only contacted the four I wanted to interview. Don't have time to contact the other 79.

But what goes around, comes around. My boss asked me to apply for another position in my company. That was 4 weeks ago and I haven't heard a thing.

It’s been awful. Job eliminated (12/1) and out of work for the first time since the age of 13 when I started work. Amazing to me the 30+ recruiters who have called or contacted me over the years. I always helped them with leads as I am a big believer in karma. I also kept all their contact information. Now reaching out to them for help and crickets, nothing. LinkedIn has been better and I highly recommend finding someone that works at the company and try to get them to help get your resume to the top. It has worked and those are the companies I have been able to reply and interview with.

Good luck in your search and happy to help in any way I can. I am in the CPG industry. Feel free to PM.
