Job seeker Diana Mekota has shared a mean email rejection she got from Kelly Blazek, the head of a well-known communications job bank in Ohio, and the email has gone viral.  Mekota sent Blazek a request to connect on LinkedIn and Blazek responded with a rejection via email titled 'Poor Judgment on your Job-seeking Strategy.'  "Your invite to connect is inappropriate, beneficial only to you, and tacky," wrote Blazek in the email. "Wow, I cannot wait to let every 26-year-old job-seeker mine my top-tier marketing connections to help them land a job. I love the sense of entitlement in your generation. And therefore I enjoy denying your invite, and giving you the dreaded 'I Don’t Know' [blacked-out name] because it's the truth."
