Dear John rejection letter.jpgA job seeker, who had applications for full-time employment pending with many of New York’s major law firms, recently landed a clerkship. So he decided to withdraw his Biglaw applications.

Here’s the letter he sent — in a spirit of playfulness, not arrogance — to one prominent firm:

Thank you for considering me for an associate position at Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz. Your firm’s background and experiences are impressive, and I know that your efforts to find an appropriate associate will be most successful.

Unfortunately, I am no longer able to pursue a position with your firm. If for any reason my needs should change, I will let you know. I sincerely appreciate your firm’s interest and wish your firm success in its future endeavors.

Regards,
[redacted]

Marty and Herb must be heartbroken, but we suspect that they’ll get over it. Time heals all wounds.
