Rejection Letters

 The following is a template rejection letter I received from USAID. Most agencies will tell you where you rank: qualified, most qualified or merely eligible. This agency just throws you in the heap with the rejected bunch. They do not send a letter with your name, address, or an RE. It is an automated generated note with the position and grade in the subject line. I received this template three times corresponding with Grades 11, 12, 13 for  this announcement number: DHA-11-0002-KD, Contract Specialist:

Thank you for your interest in USAID and the position listed above. We are writing to notify you that the team has completed the review of applicants and you were not selected for this position USAID is a rapidly growing organization that must quickly adapt to the changing world. Consequently our hiring needs change frequently. We would like to invite you to continue to look through our open positions at USAID.GOV or www.avuecentral.com. There may be other positions that might match your skills.

Because of the volume of resumes we receive, we find it necessary to use the on-line application to screen candidates. If you do apply for another position, please provide as much detail as possible on the application form. We appreciate your on-going interest in USAID and wish you the best of luck.

Thank you.

 I think with the budget cuts they also lost creativity. At this point who needs luck, this industry is in need of a miracle.

    “Best of luck.”

    Is this an example of “faith-based initiatives”?!?! Thank yo for posting these letters. The lemmings need to see the outcomes of law grads and attorneys.
