Applying for jobs can be exhausting, and it’s often disheartening when you get a rejection letter. Or two, or three.
But rather than accepting defeat, one Sydney woman didn’t take no for an answer.
Jessica Irving applied for a job at Aldi in Sydney, according to Facebook, and soon after received her rejection letter.
"Thank you for taking the time to submit your application," the email said.
"After careful consideration, we regret to advise that you have not proceeded to the next stage in this instance."
Most of us would just move on. But not Irving.
“Dear Aldi,” Irving said.
“Although my application was rejected, I have been applying for jobs for over a year now with no success.”
“My skills are on par with your store, with the ability to be exceptionally fast paced to scan items like evert Aldi team member does. I pride myself on my impressive sale [sic] skills and describe myself to be very persuasive and show effectiveness.”
Then, Irving rejects her rejection letter.
“So persuasive in fact, that I would like to confidentially reject your rejection. Thank you for letting me be a part of the team, I won’t let you down.”
The next day, Irving received an invitation to Aldi’s group interviews.
“We would like to invite you to attend a Group Interview,” Aldi said. “Please select an appropriate time and location.”
If that’s not believing in yourself, what is?
