Because of the poor economic climate, I start looking for a job again. Below is the reply from one recruitment agency. Interesting one!

Derwent: Dear Daryl

Experience: This one is better than Manulife... at least they know my name.

Derwent: Reference Number: GXX/1XXX1

Position: Asia Pacific Training Manager - Retail

Thank you for your recent application and the details you provided outlining your employment history in relation to the above position. I have perused your resume in detail but unfortunately, on this occasion you have been unsuccessful.

Experience: I have been unsuccessful... I HAVE BEEN UNSUCCESSFUL!!! Thank you for telling me that I've failed!!!

Derwent: Again, thank you for taking the time to respond to our advertisement. I wish you well in your job search.
