Anyone else receiving STUPID rejection letters that say we are impressed with your resume and would love to keep it on file in case something else opens up but we are passing at this time? I feel like they are about as disingenuous as slapping me in the face. They are an obvious form letter and does anyone really think they are going to come back to you down the road? Would you rather receive that or be ghosted? I always write back and say thanks for the SERIOUS CONSIDERATION since I know there was none. #advice #application #jobsearch #wordsofadvice #interview #rejection #unsincere

I would say thank you, I have already accepted a career opportunity and name a role that is a level higher than what you applied to.😜

If one looks long enough there is always one out there who has yet to be discovered that more closely aligns to better fit the needs of the role

I'm sorry if I confused you, I am eager to get working again, I've been unemployed for more than 4 months, it's hard to pay my rent. I have to pull from my annuity.

Yes, it does happen. It happened to me where an employer reached out when another job opened up after they rejected me for the job I initially applied for. It was satisfying for me to say thanks for keeping me in mind but I found another job :)

Being kind, and genuine will open more doors than you can imagine right now. You seem to be a bit discouraged, but walking in kindness is an asset. Don't let a few setbacks steal a good attribute. I'm sure the right door will open soon, and you will look back on this experience, and be able to encourage someone else.🕊️
