Subject: Basic etiquettes

Dear random HR guy/gal,

Every other day you receive applications from hundreds of despo guys/gals, everyday you randomly shower them with your (in)attention. Every day you make them suffer with doubt about the usefulness of applying, as they can’t even be certain that anyone is taking out even a few seconds to read their application.

Since you are too bored/unmotivated/busy to write a simple acknowledgement or rejection letter please allow me to illustrate to you a simple three click strategy to send a simple acknowledgment or rejection letter. To do this you need to do the following steps:

1) Enable “canned responses” in google labs (a feature of gmail) and save copies of acknowledgment or rejection letters (I suppose maximum would be these). A Helpful tutorial here: http://www.readwriteweb.com/archives/gmail_canned_responses.php
2) Whenever an email comes follow the following three click strategy
a. Click on reply
b. Click on canned responses and select the appropriate one
c. Click on Send

If possible, please use the above method to, at the very least, send people a rejection letter. It will tell them that someone is taking some time to read their application.

After all it is basic etiquette to reply to someone talking to you.

FYI

Regards

The little, fat, STILL despo for a job guy
