‘Fastest job rejection’: Woman applies for job only to be rejected 20 minutes later
A woman has taken to social media to vent about the difficulties of getting a job as a young adult after being rejected for a job she applied for just 20 minutes earlier.
Heather Kathryn posted about her experience on TikTok in a video with the caption: “Can someone give the 22-year-old a chance please.”
The TikToker shared multiple screenshots, with the first being an email she sent applying for a job at an arts talent agency.

“The fastest job rejection I’ve ever experienced,” was the caption Kathryn wrote on the first screenshot.
Kathryn then shared an email she had received from the company only 20 minutes later saying that her application had been unsuccessful.
“We appreciate your interest in Creative Arts Agency (CAA) and the time you have invested in applying for Assistant - Music Touring,” the email read.
“While we were impressed with your background, we have chosen not to move forward with your candidacy at this time.”
The video, which has been viewed over 300,000 times, received hundreds of comments with many sharing similar experiences.
“My record is 90 seconds. I was like damn OK,” one person wrote.
“I get these daily. One was almost immediately. Multiple ones in a day,” another said.
“I got rejected from a government job within three minutes of submitting my application,” a TikTok user commented.
Some wrote that they had also applied for jobs at the same company and had been rejected in a similar way.
“Had this happen with CAA too, don’t worry friend,” one person wrote.
“I applied for an Influencer Manager at 3.30pm and got rejected at 4.20pm,” another commented.
“I’m like damn ... you could’ve let me explain credentials first.”
One commenter suggested that the most likely reason for the quick rejection was that the company used an automatic system.
“If you didn’t meet the screening questions or qualifications, the system can automatically disqualify you,” they said.
