I failed at interview for a job that I really wanted. I have a friend who works in the company and he said that for some reason I didn’t come across as committed enough. Anyway, I really do want to work for the company and so I’m sending the MD (it’s a small company) a letter stating how motivated I am. To back it up I want to say that I got a job offer from KPMG* (or any big 4 firm) for whatever their starting salary is (is it 23k?) but that I’d rather work for them for just over half that. This is true and if I had a job offer for 23k I genuinely would work for these guys for much less. I love what they do and their company ethos.
I’d be really grateful if someone could post or PM me a copy of their job offer letter (minus personal details) so I can include it please. I know it is peculiar but it is a means to an end, I really want to work for this company more than anyone else.
*The reason why I say KPMG is because I was actually accepted for their prelimary stage for 2009 intake but then they said they couldn’t take it any further because I didn’t have a numerate degree. They asked me to rewrite the 300 words and apply to another non numerate requirement job and then they would put me through but my then there were none available for 2009
