first rejection of the season

Not that i don't expect a whole slew of rejections for academic jobs, primarily because I tend not to fit expectations and i tend not to sell myself, but i figure this season i'll share a bit of the reasons, this one says:

although you have a well-rounded resume and had many of the qualifications that are of interest to us, we have identified candidates whose background and experience more closely match the combination of social scientific training and informatics skills we seek.

Which is fair enough to me, i don't know exactly what people are looking for, but i tend to have a feel that they aren't really looking for me exactly, usually they are looking for someone who is more disciplinary and institutionally normal, or so my assumptions lead me to believe.

Now we'll see what the next ones say.
