I'm a recent graduate looking for work.
I rang up a small private firm to make a speculative enquiry about openings. I was put through to the head of department, who asked me to email my resume which I did along with my work samples. I even offered to work unpaid for a short duration to gain experience.
A week later I heard nothing, and I sent email asking if had a chance to review and made a decision and received this response from him:
Hi Sally. Unfortunately we do not have any suitable openings at the current time. I will definitely keep your cv under reference for suitable junior roles in the near future.
Mr Head of dept
Is this a very polite rejection?
