Rejecting the rejection letter

IN THESE troubled economic times it may be difficult to obtain an offer of employment.  There are lots of skilled people competing for a small number of jobs.

Be bold, stand up for yourself, and don’t take no for an answer!

Dear Employer,

Thank you for your letter rejecting my application for employment with
your firm.

I have received rejections from an unusually large number of well
qualified organisations. With such a varied and promising spectrum of
rejections from which to select, it is impossible for me to consider
them all. After careful deliberation, then, and because a number of
firms have found me more unsuitable, I regret to inform you that I am
unable to accept your rejection.

Despite your company’s outstanding qualifications and previous
experience in rejecting applicants, I find that your rejection does
not meet with my requirements at this time. As a result, I will be
starting employment with your firm on the first of the month.

Circumstances change and one can never know when new demands for
rejection arise. Accordingly, I will keep your letter on file in case
my requirements for rejection change.

Please do not regard this letter as a criticism of your qualifications
in attempting to refuse me employment. I wish you the best of luck in
rejecting future candidates.
