Have you ever applied for a job only to get a rejection letter?
Here’s a spirited response you might want to consider. Have a chuckle and enjoy!
Dear [interviewer’s name]:
Thank you for your letter of [date of interview]. After careful consideration, I regret to inform you that I am unable to accept your refusal to offer me employment with your firm. This year I have been particularly fortunate in receiving an unusually large number of rejection letters. With such a varied and promising field of candidates, it is impossible for me to accept all refusals.
Despite [firm’s name]’s outstanding qualifications and previous experience in rejecting applicants, I find that your rejection does not meet with my needs at this time. Therefore, I will initiate employment with your firm immediately. I look forward to seeing you later today.
Best of luck in rejecting future candidates.
Sincerely, [your name]
I don’t know who created this letter but it’s brilliant. Can you imagine the look on the employer’s face upon receiving this letter? Priceless. Heck, they might even re-consider and want to hire you if only because it shows creativity and tenacity!
