Today I got a rejection letter signed by someone I know. We were in graduate school together and friends at the time - she finished a few years before I did. It was a bit bizarre getting the letter.
It was the standard old form letter they send out to everyone. No personal note or mention - just her signature.
To be fair to her, she did send me an email a few weeks back letting me know that I probably wasn't going to get the position.
I wonder if she actually signed the letter or whether she just had a stack of them and signed them without seeing to whom they were addressed.
It all doesn't matter because, as I said before, I have a job! [smile]
