Dear Applicant,

[Hello, nameless unemployed person, whose name we can’t be bothered to learn because we’re far too busy having a job and giving back to society.]

Thank you for your application for the role of Meaningless Job Title, with little pay and fewer prospects.

[Well, we have to credit you for something.]

Sorry for the delay in responding to your email.

[Yes, it’s been 8 weeks, but you don’t need to remind us, you impatient cretin, we’ve been busy working. Do you remember what ‘working’ is?]

Unfortunately…

[Surprise, surprise!]

… on this occasion you were unsuccessful.

[You’ll never work here in a million years]

Due to the large number of applications, we are unable to offer feedback.

[It took us 8 weeks to let you know you didn’t get the job, but you’re not getting any feedback because you’re lucky we emailed you to say no in the first place, you filthy rat.]

Thank you for your interest in our organisation

[Our organisation is so awesome. We just had to validate it with that sentence. See what we did there?]

and we wish you well for the future.

[You’re going to need it, jackass.]

Yours sincerely,

[Go fuck yourself!]

Stranger Name

[A person you will never meet or hear from again, because they’re far too busy working.]
