Imagine this

Dear Hiring Manager

Thank you for your letter of April 12.

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 is impossible for me to accept all refusals.

Despite your companies' 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 in your department this August. I look forward to seeing you then.

Best of luck in rejecting future applicants.


I am confident that numerous of our regular visitors to Avatar Briefs would do an outstanding job of writing their own versions of this charming and innovative idea. I wish I’d thought of it, I really, really do, but I didn’t. I found this published at a blog called Grand-pa.
