Rejection is Great!

All names used below are fictitious.

Professor Smith
Chair - Search Committee
Department of Biochemistry
University of Towanda Health Sciences Center
Towanda, IA

Dear Professor Smith,

Thank you for your letter of March 6. After careful consideration, I regret to inform you that I am unable to accept your refusal to offer me an assistant professor position in your department.

This year I have been particularly fortunate in receiving an unusually large number of rejection letters. With such a varied and promising field of candidates it is impossible for me to accept all refusals.

Despite the University of Towanda's outstanding qualifications and previous experience in rejecting applicants, I find that your rejection does not meet my needs at this time. Therefore, I will assume the position of assistant professor in your department this May. I look forward to seeing you then.

Best luck in rejecting future applicants.

Sincerely,

Goddard Jones

Telecommuting/Work at Home:
Knowledge Workers


Low cost, high bandwidth computer information technology coupled with the demands of two wage earner families, differing work/learning styles, the changing nature of business and ecology, have made telecommuting, in some cases, the  best way to bolster worker productivity and health. Collaborative technologies allow group teleconferencing; distance learning; Internet based demonstrations and whiteboard sessions; sharing of online knowledgebases, discussions, documents, calendars and customer information; and secure, instantaneous and anywhere email, web, PDA, paging and cellular phone access. Further these collaborative communications can be as structured or unstructured, in depth or superficial, and spontaneous or planned as the participants desire.

While face-to-face team and/or customer meetings are important at times, it may not be cost effective, necessary, beneficial or even feasible on a daily basis. 

Office buildings may not become dinosaurs overnight, but with long, stressful city commutes, cramped cubicles, relocation costs, dual wage earner families that have less time for their children, escalating fuel prices and the damaging environmental impact of roads, parking structures and automobiles, telecommuting and work-at-home should be considered as alternatives for many types of workers. While the "digital" handshake may not be as warm, in the long term it may be more rewarding for all concerned. Further, these advantages may apply not only to business, but also education, medicine, science, art and other walks of life. Perhaps the word "tele (far) commuting" is already obsolete since it connotes the necessity of commuting- unnecessary, perhaps even harmful in many instances. Perhaps we are all, in the broadest sense, knowledge workers - wherever we work in the global digital economy

Some workers have better and quicker computer and telecommunications access at home than at work, making them more, not less productive than if they worked in an office- notwithstanding the already enumerated  personal and societal benefits of working at home. It is my hope that given the above, and the death of the factory control, repetitive hyperspecialization notion of work, knowledge workers and companies will increasingly reap the rewards of work at home.

From "What Are People For?"
by Wendell Berry


Good work finds the way between pride and despair.

It graces with health. It heals with grace.

It preserves the given so that it remains a gift

By it, we lose loneliness:

we clasp the hands of those who go before us, and the hands of those who come after us;

we enter the little circle of each other's arms,

and the larger circle of lovers whose hands are joined in a dance,

and the larger circle of all creatures, passing in and out of life, who move also in a dance, to a music so subtle and vast that no ear hears it except in fragments.

 

Resume & Interview Advice

The most important aspect of resume writing is that it helps you focus on what your career objectives are and allows you to review your past experience and abilities in this light. You should preplan your approach to complement your resume, references and personal style.

Often multiple candidates appear to have the technical and even managerial background the position requires. People hire because at a fundamental level they like (relate to) the job seeker and feel they can trust them (personal and professional integrity).

Also important in the interview process is your understanding of and sensitivity for the employer's industry and/or business problems. Preparation is often key. The harder your prepare, the more you demonstrate to the potential employer your sincerity and commitment.
