LOOK: Is this the most insensitive job application?

Human Resources Online is heading to Bangkok with the Accelerate HR conference on November 26-27.
HR leaders from Agoda, DKSH, Fonterra, FWD, Kasikornbank, Minor Food, Nissan Motor and more have already confirmed to speak.
Early-bird tickets are still available.

We found this cover letter online, and while we’re not sure if it’s legitimate or a hoax, we must admit it’s worth a look.


The letter reads: “I refer to the recent death of the technical manager at your company and hereby apply for the replacement of the deceased manager.

“Each time I apply for a job, I get a reply that there is no vacancy but in this case I have caught you red-handed and you have no excuse because I even attended the funeral to be sure that he was truly dead and buried before applying.

“Attached to my letter is a copy of my C.V. and his death certificate.”

So what do you think? If this appeared in your inbox, would you offer him an interview?
