An applicant called Jamie Jones has revealed a job rejection letter from Cadbury that has the potential to give Sir Richard Branson sells his majority stake in Virgin Atlantic a run for its money.
The letter, posted via Twitter, had got over 15,900 re-tweets and has been favourited over 10,000 times by Tuesday morning.
In reply to Jones’s application for the position of a global quality manager, Cadbury wrote, “Listing ‘Super secret spy work I legally can’t talk about’ won’t fool anyone”.
When asked for references, the applicant listed the Queen as a referee and attached a fiver with the sentence “Elizabeth *wink,wink*”.
Cadbury said it normally didn’t reply to unsuccessful applicants but made an exception in Jones’s case, to return the fiver.
Cadbury went on to call the applicant’s sketch of an “everlasting chocolate bar […] unwarranted, absurd and quite frankly [it] scared us a little”.
Take a look at the letter:
