Rejection Letters

February 24, 2011


I got one the other day.

I applied to a company, had an initial phone interview, and then never heard from them again.

A month later, I got a rejection letter from them, basically saying, “Thank you for your interest in our company. We regret to inform you that we’ve decided to go with another candidate.”


No, really?!?

When I tell people about this, most say, “Well, at least they were nice enough to let you know.”

Well yeah…but I already knew.

Look, if a company’s interested in you, they’re not going to keep you hanging for more than a week.

They’ll let you know.

They’ll get in touch.

They’ll keep you updated.

If not…

They’re Just Not That Into You.

Do we really need rejection letters to state the obvious?

Yeah, as much as we need Ricky Martin to announce that he’s gay.

…Or a poll that LA has the worst traffic.

…Or A-Rod admitting he took steroids.

BTW, I also heard somewhere that junk food isn’t good for you.
