I once got a certified letter with signature confirmation from a company to which I had previously applied for a job. I opened it up and it was a rejection letter :) It cost them around $4.50 to mail.

A week later, I got another letter from the same company, also with signature confirmation and via certified mail. I opened it up thinking that the company may have changed their mind and decided to bring me in for an interview, but lo and behold it was another rejection letter for the same position :) Another $4.50 wasted just to rub into my face. Both of them were hand signed.

I still saved those letters. Those bastards ;)

No offense, but that's damned funny.

I'd suspect something good. Why would they send you a certified REJECTION letter?

If it is a rejection letter write them a letter along the line of this:


Thank you for your letter of [date of rejection letter]. After careful consideration, I regret to inform you that I am unable to accept your refusal to offer me employment with your firm. 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 firm's outstanding qualifications and previous experience in rejecting applicants, I find that your rejection does not meet with my needs at this time. I would like to thank you for you time and best of luck in rejecting future candidates.


lol this is hilarious
