We all know that HR is never dull, but sometimes it can get downright weird...
Revenge of the Rejected
Don't be surprised to start receiving this rejection-of-a-rejection form letter, sent recently to the Internet marketing site Iconocast.com:
Dear Hiring Manager:
Thank you for your letter dated Oct. 4, 2001. After careful consideration, I regret to inform you that I am unable to accept your refusal to offer me a 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's impossible for me to accept all refusals.
Despite your company's outstanding qualifications and previous experience in rejecting applicants, I find that your rejection does not meet my needs at this time.
I look forward to seeing you Monday, at 9 a.m., as I begin my future with your company. I wish you the best of luck in rejecting future applicants.
Joe B. Brown
