(The original email had large blank areas, which wordpress was kind to remove. I reckon it wass supposed to look like a formal letter, but come on. Get with the times. It’s an email)


Dear Mace,

Associate, we are sorry to say that you are not among the candidates to be considered for the position.

We appreciate your interest in Genencor. We encourage you to stay up to date on other job

What’s confusing is this: I’ve been at my new job for four months now. I don’t even know WHAT I applied for at Genencor anymore. And why on EARTH does it take them more than six months, just to tell me I’m not good enough? Strange business, my friends.
