Today, I applied for a new job as a maintenance technician. About 10 minutes after submitting my resume, I received a rejection letter. My girlfriend is their HR person. FML

Give her a chance to explain. She might have let slip you two were involved and the company said no to nepotism.

she has to be fair but it is worth talking to her. she can't block your career and ten minutes seems suspiciously short. she should have a good work related reason for rejecting you

Some companies use filtering software to filter out resumes that don't meet their criteria. Maybe OP's resume ran into one of those.

I hope she doesn’t reject your requests for other kinds of ‘jobs, if you know what I mean *nudge, nudge, wink, wink* You do know what I mean, right? If you don’t, message me and I’ll explain — it’s hilarious!

At many companies I’ve worked for it is ok to date and be married to people in other departments as long as there is not chain of command issues, such as being married to your boss. These rules are normally more strict for HR though due to their unique positions/roles, they aren’t generally allowed to date employees or have immediate family at the company.

Some companies have computer systems that reject applications based on simple errors like spelling before they are ever seen by an actual human

Report her to HR!!.... wait...

At least she’s efficient.

I'm sorry...... this was good! 😂

But do you really wanna work where your gf is the HR is the main question.

Did she know you were applying for a position and do ya really want to work where she's basically your boss?

Either she knows your work ethic or you can't work with family/significant others.
