The Best Rejection



Some of us have long memories.

The chance to create a positive impression even during rejection is noted and appreciated by me.

And so I have to commend

Rothschild Bank

For their recent superb rejection letter to me after I applied to them for employment.

What was so great?


  • They sent back a reply quickly using first class post
  • They actually bothered to reply at all
  • Their reply was in English, polite and to the point
  • It was  concise
  • They did not return my CV
  • They enclosed their letter in a plastic wallet backed with some card.  It felt like a little present as it popped into our post box

So this reminds me, that, even the process of rejection is something that can be done well.  Well done Sirs.
