Links for the rejected:

Interviewer: While looking over your resume that you wrote on a used paper napkin, I do not see what qualifies you for this job as Web Developer or any position here really.

Job Seeker: Well sir, it says my last name is Short...nephew to Chris Short, the janitor.

Interviewer: Oh yes! Now I see. Tell your uncle excellent work. Welcome aboard!

And the letter reads:

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to review your manuscript. I don't feel this is a project I can take on at this time.

As I conduct legal practice in addition to my work as an agent, I am forced to be very selective in both the number and kinds of literary projects that I take on to represent. While I am eagerly looking for quality commercial fiction, I ultimately concluded that your writing was not that engaging, and I felt your dialogue was weak. You should certainly not interpret my decision as the final negative assessment of your manuscript. As you know, this is a most subjective business and most agents, I believe, take only those projects that they personally feel strongly about and most confident in selling. Other agents may well assess your manuscript differently.

I wish you the best in finding strong representation for your work, and thank you again for giving me the opportunity to consider this project.

Sincerely yours,
Elaine P. English
