Job searching can be hard, but every now-and-again, I get a good chuckle. Today I received this reject letter:
Thank you for your interest in our XYZ position. We have had a chance to review your resume and compare it against other people who have expressed an interest in this position as well.
Unfortunately, we have decided to pursue other candidates who appear to match (skills and experience) our requirements more closely at this time.
Should something change on our side (or we get another job opening that matches your background better), we will not hesitate to contact you.
Thank you again for your interest in an employment opportunity with ABC Company, and we wish you the best in your current job search.
Thanks for sharing your background and for your interest in ABC Company. Our team has reviewed your resume. Although you have good qualifications, we've decided to pursue other candidates who fit our requirements more precisely.
We will keep your resume on file for future possibilities. If you have applied for another opening at ABC Company, your application will be considered separately.
I have to admit, I appreciate a company that notifies its candidates either way (many don't), but am thinking it's overkill to tell me twice I'm not qualified. I got it the first time.
