Rejection letter gets rejected!
Earlier today at work, one of our senior officers requested me to draft a pro-forma rejection letter for our clients. Not that I don’t know how to properly write a business letter, but it has always been a habit for me to check on the net for some updates before I do something. Well,I think that’s the right thing to do so I’d do every task more than expected.
And as I was browsing from one site to another, I came across something at chaosmatrix.org. It was entitled “The Ultimate Rejection Letter”. When I started reading it, I instantly knew that it wasn’t the right sample I was looking for. The first paragraph alone made me smile so I continued to read on and ended up LMAO.
Here’s the “Ultimate Rejection Letter”:
Herbert A. Millington
Chair – Search Committee
412A Clarkson Hall, Whitson University
College Hill, MA 34109
Dear Professor Millington,
Thank you for your letter of March 16. After careful consideration, I regret to inform you that I am unable to accept your refusal to offer me an assistant professor position in your department.
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 Whitson’s outstanding qualifications and previous experience in rejecting applicants, I find that your rejection does not meet my needs at this time. Therefore, I will assume the position of assistant professor in your department this August. I look forward to seeing you then.
Best of luck in rejecting future applicants.
Chris L. Jensen
So, in any case you receive a rejection letter one of these days or in the future, try replying with something like this. LOL
