The Gatekeeper Keeps Asking Me To Email But Nobody Reads It
This happens because the gatekeeper wants to get rid of you but not crush your hopes with an outright rejection. Hence, they ask you to send emails, to avoid the responsibility of rejecting you.
But they know that the email is going to end up in the trash anyway. The best is to counter their request with the correct statements to get another shot for a conversation with the intended recipient.
