Was I hired or not?

This is the most cryptic reject note I’ve ever received! I applied for this job, went to the interview for testing etc. Rejection letters are usually short, sweet and to the point. If the answer is “no” then there’s no need to spare my feelings – just give me the information!

Dear Nathaniel,

 Thank you for your interest in employment with *******and for your participation in our employment testing. We have decided at this time, based on the results to date, to proceed further in the process with other candidates whose skills, qualifications and evaluation results more closely match our current needs.  We will keep your information on file for future consideration should the need arise and a suitable position becomes available.

 We wish you success in your future endeavors.

 Yours truly,

 Human Resources

I am a resident of Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada who has blogged here for 20 years. I like to share my thoughts and feelings on my own online space. From 1998 until 2017 I worked as a journalist and I hope to use this website as an archive for all of my stories.


  1. Nope! This was for some poker website – not Scientology. The Scientologists would be happy to have me, but alas, they don’t pay a wage. They only give you an allowance.

  2. Was that the employer whose name starts with an S?

    No doubt they turned you down because they were looking for people to brainwash and lure into the fold.
