    margarets got a reaction from lacanadiense in Like Watching Sausage Being Made   
    This all makes complete sense to me.  15-20 years ago I wouldn't have believed it (too naive, too invested in the idea that the system is rational and functional) but in my working life, having been involved in hiring people, evaluating proposals, etc, I've seen how arbitrary these kinds of processes can be.  You need to be good enough to be seriously considered, but beyond that, things get really idiosyncratic.  And often a completely deserving candidate just doesn't get it because there is room for only so many and someone had to be rejected.
