I applied for an entry level sales job, I graduated college in 2022. I received a form rejection letter that was BCC'd to me. They didn't even have the decency to reach out personally. The funny thing is, the person I spoke to on the phone for the initial screening was the one who sent it to me, even though she said she would pass my resume on to the hiring team - LIAR
What they said is "we appreciate your interest and we're glad that you took the time to apply" (Yeah, right). "Unfortunately, at this time we're not able to offer you a position" (no, you're not willing to offer me a position, you are perfectly able to, don't BS me). "We wish you the best of luck in your future endeavors" (Tell it to the Marines)
The options I'm considering are
- Copy-pasting the rejection email and sending it back to them with annotations in capital letters and parentheses (LIKE THIS)
- Responding with "Whatever, your loss"
- Responding with a rejection of their rejection, essentially "Though your rejection letter was impressive, I have decided to show up at your office anyway, with the full knowledge that I am indeed the best person for this role."
Could any of these options have any serious negative consequences for me? I already know they're not interested in me, so I don't care if I burn my bridges with them and lose my chance to ever get hired by them.
