    Job Seeker's Email To Padres Gains National Attention

    SAN DIEGO -- The San Diego Padres recently received a big surprise in the form of a very spirited email from a rejected job applicant -- an email that is now getting plenty of national attention.
    And plenty of national attention it is. Her response has gone viral.

    You go, girl!! LOL.

    I'd hire her in a heartbeat.

    Re: Job Seeker's Email To Padres Gains National Attention

    there is a company that i fantasized about sending a letter like that to. i must have applied for more than 50 jobs there, and i didn't apply for anything that i wasn't really qualified for. of course, i sent no such letter, because i like to keep my options open to receive more rejection letters from them in the future. but who knows, i might get hired there at some point, so it's not worth the burned bridge. what really got on my nerves was receiving auto-rejection emails within an hour of applying when i'd been careful to make sure my resume custom fit the position. nobody read the damned thing. i found out later that they were probably not real jobs; they were simply re-deployments for existing employees, and just had to be posted to comply with some law. it pissed me off somewhat.

    it looks like the publicity over this one might land her a gig somewhere, so good on her. however, this is still something i'd really recommend not doing.

    She will get a job out this but like she said, it is ironic what garnered her the attention. She did the verbal version of that jetblue guy who snagged a couple of beers and jettisoned down the emergency ramp.

    I'm totally shocked anyone actually read the letter to begin with. SOMEONE in the HR office must have been bored that day, or something.


    For the most part, online jobs, and the emails that go along with them, are never once viewed by human eyes. It's all done via software designed to seek out certain words and catch phrases. Seriously. Call up, and speak to a resume writer sometime. The first actual human contact with an applicant, actual human consideration, is typically, LITERALLY, the first interview, be it over the phone (usually), or in person. Everything else is determined by software protocall. So, if you never get that first interview, it's time to review your resume and cover letter, and see if you can't figure out which catchwords software are programed to pick up on for that month.

    I lolled, but this probably hurts her chance at ever being hired by any major sports team.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    If you have ever applied for a job in a big coorporation, you can understand her frustration. Getting through the front door can be tough sometimes.

    Interesting result for her, her book is now selling.
