Rejecting The Rejection


Well, I wasn’t getting any younger nor any smarter at my current job. I had already invested 5 years here. I had my gratuity guaranteed, and unfortunately an unromantic life seemed to be guaranteed as well. I wasn’t going anywhere professionally, nor personally. That was just unacceptable. So I did what the next average Jane does. I applied to my Dream Company, only to get an apologetic rejection letter. Not being someone with a defeatist attitude, I applied to all of my dream companies… and some not so much of dream companies. (Desperation may do that to you!) However, 6 months in, I was in the same office… doing the same work… seeing the same uncrushable candidates.

So the next time I got a rejection letter from a hoped-for employer,  Signed by Mr. Brawn of SadistTempraments Ltd., I decided to make my stand very clear. Here is the mail I sent them in reply to the rejection letter:

Dear Mr. Brawn,

Thank you for your letter dated 29th Feb 2011. 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 SadistTempramental’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 following the one week notice period that I have to give my present company, Willboretheshitoutofyou Ltd. I look forward to working with you.

Best of luck in rejecting future candidates.

Sincerely,
Dementiated Kor
