Reply With Personality

Personality is an unbroken series of successful gestures. ~ F. Scott Fitzgerald

We have all seen reply notification to the order of, “Thank you for contact us.” Or the “Someone will respond soon,” and no one ever does.  But here is a company, Two Bit Circus,  that sells the personality of a company with a simple job application response:”This is an automatic email, sent by a dashingly handsome but tragically misunderstood robot, to let you know we’re absolutely thrilled that you would be interested in working at Two Bit Circus. I’m sending this auto-responder to tell you personally, Tim, that your application will receive my highest attention.

“This is an automatic email, sent by a dashingly handsome but tragically misunderstood robot, to let you know we’re absolutely thrilled that you would be interested in working at Two Bit Circus. I’m sending this auto-responder to tell you personally, Tim, that your application will receive my highest attention.

Pretty impressive, eh? You should’ve seen me in my glory days. Our founders here at Two Bit Circus programmed me to automate the Game Producer position. I was killing it. Management loved me. But try unionizing a few power tools and machines and — wouldn’t you know it — the reigning robot-of-the-month gets partially wiped and reprogrammed to send out form emails all day to humans who think the’d make a better Game Producer than me.

Anyway, Game Producer, I’ll make sure your application gets into the right hands. Please be patient. You humans are agonizingly slow, and to be honest, sometimes the people here seem to place a greater priority on bathroom breaks than on reviewing resumes. But rest assured that an actual human will really look at your application.

Good luck!”

This was entertaining to read and only took a few minutes to give potential employees a better sense of companies personality.  Look for ways you can take simple common mundane tasks and infuse them with personality.
