Email Gift

I came home from work around 8 p.m. and realized it was getting too late to go for a run. This was a response to a recent job application I wrote :

Dear [First Name],

This letter is to advise that, whilst your skills and experiences may meet some of the client’s requirements in regard to the recently advertised ... blah blah blah ....

We pride ourselves on our professionalism and our high care, high commitment approach to the recruitment process, and trust the contact you have had with us reflects this.

Again, thank you for your interest, ... blah blah bah.

AND they sent it to 31 other Email addresses!!!!

So what could I do but REPLY ALL ...

Dear [others @ insert name here],

Sorry to hear you also were unsuccessful with your application. Best of Luck with your future endeavours.

[insert first name]

There was also a full apology from the Managing Director in a following Email. This made my day!

Thanks for the reminder on my Blog. I will get onto it straight away.

I hope you get one positive "welcome to the team" email/call/letter sometime soon.

That's hilarious. Unfortunately I see it happen all too often. Do people use email and not get any training in the relevant applications anymore????
