  • Really polite. Damm I never got any of them. Just automated one that he sends


What Girls Said 1

  • Polite, but I feel it could be worded better. I find phrases such as "in the mean time" to be somewhat childish. I feel the concept and attitude of your piece are well done, but the writing itself could be more professionly thought out.

    • This is not something I wrote. This is something a company sent me.

      I can't decide if they liked me as a candidate but for whichever reason I didn't progress through the next stage, or they didn't like me at all.

    • Show All
    • But I think for some reason this was a personally written rejection letter.

      I have received a rejection from the company before and this one sounded really different.

    • Companies do re-write their automated emails, and sometimes different e-mails are sent for the specific position applied for.
      In the end you'll never know. Just keep reapplying! Always persure your dream
