If that's a real story... you should have enough professional sense to not make those kinds of mistakes. Otherwise you shouldn't be working in that kind of position in the first place. Rejection and handling rejection is all part of the game.

maybe its me, but the bloggers writing skills seem very weak and he comes off uneducated...

i guess thats why he lambasted her in an email. if he realized how lucky he was to even get an interview he clearly would have been more than happy with next to zero time/effort invested.

This was my comment, I don't think the moderator will approve it, though :/

"1) You're an idiot.
2) If you were dumb enough to send that email, you really DO need to seek help.
3) Have you heard of grammar and punctuation?
4) Thank god you're not working in CDS, I have this feeling you could somehow singlehandedly bring down the world economy just by being near a trading desk."
