How to Handle Rejection

Posted: 23 Jan 2008 11:48 PM CST

I love a good laugh once in a while, especially at things that are witty and fun.

This guy really impressed me with the way he handled rejection. We can learn a lot from him, can’t we?

Dear Professor Millington,

Thank you for your letter of March 16. After careful consideration, I
regret to inform you that I am unable to accept your refusal to offer me
an assistant professor position in your department.

This year I have been particularly fortunate in receiving an unusually
large number of rejection letters. With such a varied and promising field
of candidates, it is impossible for me to accept all refusals.

Despite Whitson’s outstanding qualifications and previous experience in
rejecting applicants, I find that your rejection does not meet my needs at
this time. Therefore, I will assume the position of assistant professor
in your department this August. I look forward to seeing you then.

Best of luck in rejecting future applicants.

Chris L. Jensen "

Again from Personal Development for the Book Smart (wish I could take rejection that well).
