Rejection Letter

The rejection letters for job applicants start to come in. Some are more personal than others. (Click the image to see the full comic.)

Albert Wang is a true double threat, with all the usefulness of an artist coupled with all the personality of a lawyer. Read more of his work on Tumblr or LiveJournal.

    This is I suppose funny, but not when it subjugates women who are trying to get ahead in the profession.

    How does it subjugate women? The crossing out of Ms. is more about not knowing or not caring the sex of the interviewee, kind of like how they misspelled the interviewee’s name in the greeting line.

      No, it does not. But Michelle Honey, since when Alma and Ellen have ever subjected themselves to logic and reasoning?

    Wasting postage on rejects is silly. Post them on line. Give every interviewee a number so they can match their private number with an OK or a “go away.”

    And its time to change interviews: i would invite all interviewees to the office for a day to see who does well in that setting. Ask women to get you coffee or to type a letter to see if they have a feminist chip on their shoulder. Tell men to get you a sandwhich or hold someone’s purse. If they’re accepted at the end of the day, have drinks in the conference room and welcome them to the firm.

    Thanks for the feedback. I think there’s something to be said for letting a fictional (as it were) world speak for itself, so maybe I’ll try to do more along these lines in the future.
