Dear Rejection Letter,
Hi, how are you doing? I hope you are doing fine sitting in a pile with the rest of the others and wondering maybe the person reading you will be shattered or will bear the consequences of your actions. You know it has been a while. People say it’s an easy thing to apply for jobs, and I agree, it is, but getting the job isn’t.
“Thank you for your interest. Unfortunately, we will not be moving forward with your application. Thank you for your time and interest. Better luck next time. We will keep your CV for future requirements…”. Why are you so annoying and irritating altogether?
Well, rejection is fine because it gives you all sorts of experience to deal with in improving your further self, but it would have been more helpful if you mentioned the reason for rejection. Isn’t your purpose to explain what led to the rejection. Now, look at you sitting with so many others in the spam waiting to be opened by someone still applying for jobs irrespective of many rejections.
I get it. You don’t want a person as a fresher and won’t even try to give a single chance because experience is all that matters. It isn’t sad or depressing anymore because every person has their capabilities to show, and if organisations like you won’t even give a chance, then these automated rejection letters are just a waste of time and energy.
You go to a restaurant or a bar, or maybe even while planning your vacations, there is something written depicting what they offer you. If by any chance anything goes wrong, we start to question them even if it was just a blunder of thoughts.
And there you are playing the most unsatisfactory job in the world. So many possibilities you are not conveying. Why and how people could improve further, what made you reject them. These are the things I think you are lacking. But by simply stating out a one-liner, the person will only discard the mail.
Dear rejection letter, for once try to fulfil our needs and demands and not shove away the reason of why and how. If this can be changed, then the disappointment would be less and people will try even harder the next time because that is how it works—learning from the mistakes we made and giving it a shot even if it is late.
Be polite for once and make a difference in the miserable lives of people who are getting rejections daily yet not stopping. And please, for once, step up and try to taste the heart of being a bigger one in this role of rejection.
A stubborn ass waiting for another rejection.
