The Best Rejection Letter Ever

Dear Jonathan,

Thank you for applying to the U.S. Digital Service. We’re inspired by the growing number of engineers, designers, and technology experts eager to tackle government's toughest problems and answer the call of public service.

The U.S. Digital Service is in its early stages, and we are seeking candidates with skills tightly matched to our current projects. Members of our team reviewed your application, and we don't have the perfect match for your background right now.

Thanks, again, for applying. We see the tremendous potential to improve services at all levels of government—from local to state to federal—and we encourage you to stay involved in this important work.
