In any case, I think I may have gotten the most poorly worded rejection ever.
Thank you for submitting your application for the Assistant Professor of XXXX job opening. We appreciate your interest in XXXX University and for this position. The candidate selected for employment has been notified.
If you have not been contacted and extended an offer, this is notification the position was filled by another candidate. Any applications you've submitted for other job postings are still active. We extend our best wishes to you in your job search.That was it. In its entirety. I don't always buy into the whole "its not you, its me" wording on most of these letters, but at least they try and stop you from jumping off the nearest tall building by telling you that it was a tough decision or implying that you were qualified, but not an ideal "fit"....
And what's with the "If you have not been contacted and extended an offer, this is notification the position was filled by another candidate" stuff? Can't they just pretend like I'm an adult and say I wasn't selected? Maybe even use my name?
