#3

Email them now. Often it’s 9am.


#4

on august the 8th


#5

?? Surely not. that’s a dick move.


#6

It is a dick move.


#7

In my experience it doesn’t matter, it’s not like it gets to 5pm and they immediately start sorting through the applicants. You’d have no way of knowing anyway, so why stress?


#8

Last time I emailed a company about a job before formally applying, it was to double-check how many references they needed. The advert said 2, the further particulars said 3. Somehow managed to enrage them. Needless to say, I had the last laugh by not getting the job


#9

why not just put 3 down then

similarly if the deadline is ambiguous why not send it in the day before

no sympathy from me at all here warny


#10

not looking for sympathy. Just FACTS


#11

good job they didn’t specify “closing date: winter”

eh? ho ho ho and how we laughed


#12

it’s probably end of day today but yeah, shoulda done it yesterday m9


#13

thanks everyone. I might just become DiS’ avant garde editor after all!


#14

unlikely these other terrible people, i hope you get the job


#15

No, but some places discount applications that come in after their (often arbitrary) deadlines.


#16

by how much?


#17

It depends on the place. I’ve been part of processes where they won’t accept applications sent in 1 minute after the deadline.


#18

Unless it says otherwise it will be 11.59pm.


#19

They didn’t say what year though did they? Yeah! Submit that CV babes!
