Employer: Where was that resume I told you to file? Can you bring it back with three additional copies?

Employee: Oh, I am sorry. I thought when you said to file it, you meant throw it in the trash like always.

Employer: Ah who am I kidding! We were just gonna hire someone else anyway. The janitor told me about his nephew, who has a computer.

And the letter reads:

Residency selection is one of our most difficult tasks because practically every applicant is either well qualified or exceptionally well qualified. This year we received over 430 applications for our five ophthalmology residency positions. The initial Review Committee read each application carefully in an effort to identify those applicants likely to be the most competitive as well as comfortable in the ophthalmology residency program at Scheie Eye Institute at the University of Pennsylvania. It was a very challenging task.

Although we would have liked to interview all resident applicants, this would be unrealistic. We are writing now to inform you that you are not among those applicants who will be invited to the University of Pennsylvania for an ophthalmology residency interview. We are confident, however, that you will be invited to interview at a number of other residency programs suited to your needs, and that you will have a productive and rewarding career as an ophthalmologist.

We look forward to meeting you as a colleague and wish you much success in the Ophthalmology Match.

With very best regards,

Nicholas J. Volpe, M.D.
Associate Professor of Ophthalmology
Stuart L. Fine, M.D.
Chairman, Department of Ophthalmology

Jenny Bartelle
Coordinator, Educational Director, Residency Program Director, Scheie Eye Institute Activities
