The Standard

Another day of searching online for a suitable career. I have applied for so many positions now that I do not remember all of them. I'm going to start a log of every job I apply for from this point on. For the amount of jobs I applied for, I have received just a few rejection emails. They are all pretty standard, formal, impersonal, cold. Here is a copy:

Dear Matthew,

Thank you for submitting your resume to [comapny deleted] for consideration.

We are fortunate to have many qualified candidates apply to each of our
positions. We have reviewed the qualifications of each candidate and after
careful consideration, we have determined that the credentials of other
candidates may better fit our needs at this time.

Good luck on your search for employment.

The only nice thing is these companies actually acknowledge that you have expressed interest.
