MEET THE NEW YEAR – SAME AS THE OLD YEAR

Respect due to the archdeacon's P.A., she writes an excellent rejection letter. I'm a leading expert on this particular form of correspondence and this is one of the best I have come across.

MADPRIEST'S MAKE OR BREAK JANUARY APPEAL

The monthly subscriptions already pledged now remains at £290.00 ($449.61). Still nearly half way there!

See Tuesday's MADPRIEST UPDATE for full details.

Another way to help Jonathan is to buy Amazon products via his Amazon shop. Details of how to do this can be found in the right hand sidebar.

MEET THE NEW YEAR – SAME AS THE OLD YEAR — 8 Comments

  1. In my experience of reading/writing employment letters, someone who offers to speak to you if you call, should immediately be called. They generally have something to tell you.

  2. I have bought two more things via Amazon for you today, Mad Priest.

    I’m glad you’re still applying for jobs. Nothing is lost by keeping on doing so, it seems to me.

  3. True. I can see that. I’m sure it’s extremely rough to keep going through it.

    Still, you can’t get a job you don’t apply for. Well, I think you should keep trying, anyway. Don’t let the bastards beat you.

    To think of it as “I have been rejected” doesn’t make it any easier. They had a pool of people who applied and they don’t know any of them. It isn’t personal. You’re probably thinking “easy for you to bloody say” but I have been there often enough myself.

  4. I can’t go into details because of an impending court case. But I do now know that a lot of it is personal. Lies have been told about me by my former bishop. I have good people who have promised to counter his accusations in court but I may succumb to depression before it gets that far. Then they will have won.

  5. Well, that’s not good.

    The impression I have certainly had over the past year or so is that in a fair few cases it was just that the post in question got a lot of applications. That’s what I was basing my reply on.

    If you’re up against lies being told about you I am not sure what you can do.

    I still think you should keep trying, unless it becomes too hard for you. They don’t all seem to be biased against you from the start.

    I don’t have solutions, obviously, Jonathan – I would just be sorry to see you stop. That’s all.
