I graduated in July. Since then I have applied for hundreds of jobs, all demanding various levels of competence and experience. These are all of the rejection letters I have received. There are three.

Dear Suzie

Thank you very much for your recent application for the position of Music & Clubs Assistant at Time Out; it was good to read your submission.

We have had so many applications of such high quality, including yours, that unfortunately on this occasion, we won’t be taking your application further.

However, we really do appreciate your interest in Time Out.  We hope that if any other suitable vacancies arise in the future, you will apply to us again; sadly, we are not able to keep your details on file or give any more detailed feedback at this stage.

Best regards and good luck for the future,
