Thank you for taking the time to discuss your application for Travel Sales Consultant.
After careful consideration, it is with regret that we have decided not to pursue your application any further at this stage.
We wish you the very best of luck and thank you again for your valuable time and interest in a career with XXX.
Thank you for your email confirming that my ten years in the travel industry, including 5 years as a consultant, 7 years as a Certified International Tour Director, a world traveler (more than 50 countries), and status as an award winning employee at several of the companies that employ me----were not quite up to snuff for a $30,000 a year job answering phones and making flight reservations in a town the size of a walnut.
I am incredulous that I didn't make the second round for a position located in the thriving metropolis of XXX. I imagine that tiny little outpost is just teeming with candidates with my experience and credentials! It might behoove you to know that while the people there are lovely, most have yet to set foot in another state, much less another country. If it's not too much, would you mind sharing that endless list of candidates who are willing to move there and have--at the same time--visited 50 countries in their lifetime? And worked as a consultant for 5 years?
I thank you again for the opportunity to interview with XXX. But what I'd really like you to know is this:
1) I called the office in XXX and spoke to the woman in charge there. She shared with me that her business was recently bought by your corporation and she was appalled that qualified candidates were being turned away by your mysterious and impersonal corporate recruitment system.
2) She was impressed with my resume and would like to interview me next week! They are desperate for help.
3)She recognized my love for her beautiful state and it's people and said she couldn't think of a better person than me to have on board there.

Oh, my goodness. Having a bad day?
You are totally missing the point of my post, dear friend. It was meant in the spirit of "fight the big guys---hang with the small guys." You know, the small guys are down to earth, appreciate what you have to offer, and give you a chance.
Why am I applying for a job that is so beneath me? I actually don't thinnk it's beneath me. I think it would be a nice job.
And....oh wise one...have you looked out the window lately? Watched any news? Seen any foreclosure signs on the lawns next to yours?
Come on!!!!! Everyone is looking for a job! 30,000 people were just laid off from Bank Of America...and Post Office employees will be getting their pink slips any day now.
Hello? Are you in there?
