Mean LinkedIn Rejection Makes Internet Rounds

A rejection letter posted on LinkedIn is making the rounds on the Internet as people deride it as unprofessional and demeaning.

A Heck of a Rejection Letter

The letter comes from a Cleveland professional who runs a job bank with over 7,300 subscribers, but has shut down her Twitter and LinkedIn accounts since the controversy. The professional in question has not yet made any official comment on the matter.

Some excerpts from the letter read: “Your invitation to connect is inappropriate…beneficial only to you and tacky. Wow, I cannot wait to let every 26 year-old jobseeker mine my top tier marketing connections to help them land a job

She ends the letter by saying: “I love the sense of entitlement in your generation and therefore I enjoy denying your invite…you’re welcome for your humility lesson for the year…Don’t ever write me again.”

Inevitable Backlash

According to social media experts, the exchange may have risen from a misunderstanding about the job bank’s policy on who it accepts invites from. The letter has since appeared on Facebook and Twitter, drawing angry responses for its rudeness and unprofessionalism.
