British Airways Recruitment
I have to be honest; I can't really remember applying to BA. This has, however, raised an important point. I will probably be on the never give a job interview to this person list of all the major companies that advertised in The Guardian dated 29/09/07.
Thank you for the time and effort you have spent in applying for the position of Development Associate, Corporate Relations at London Business School.
The post attracted a number of qualified and capable individuals, which made short listing extremely difficult. Having completed this process, we regret that you have not been successful on this occasion. While your mix of knowledge, skills and experience was relevant to the position, there were candidates who had a profile that matched our requirements a little more closely than your own.
We would like to thank you for the interest you have shown in London Business School and wish you well in your search for a suitable position.
Oh well never mind.
The Christmas present is really fantastic, but it has not arrived yet. My other little project has taken another turn for the better, with one more recruit. All to be revealed after Christmas Day...
