Worst...Rejection...EVER!

Posted by Seeking Solace |

Dear Dr. Seeking Solace:

After an exhaustive review of over 125 candidates for the position of Assistant Professor, we narrowed our search to a candidate who meets our criteria and accepted our offer.

Sadly, you were not selected.

Um, right...

Oh that sucks! My "you were our second choice!" so pales in comparison. I'm so sorry.

Thanks Shrinky! I knew you would understand!

am I the only one who finds "sadly" kind of funny here? I mean...sadly? they aren't sad, that's for sure. Unfortunately seems more conventional and more honest. Unfortunately for you, you were not selected. sadly? hmmm.

Anastasia said...

and I am very sorry you didn't get it!

Lina said...

"sadly" drew out a kind of ironic laugh from me too.
Bastards - that's awful. xxxx

Oh god- I thought you were through with those by now! What a lame letter- that "sadly" comment is completely bizarre. Sorry about the rejection.

Prisca said...

Blech. Screw 'em!

Dr. Brazen Hussy said...

WTF??? Who writes a letter like that? That is just unprofessional. Sorry you received that! (But glad you blogged about it...)

Bellona said...

That's such an idiotic letter ever written. I'm sorry to hear that.

Huh? Can they be a bit more professional in sending a rejection letter? Sheesh!
