    I don't understand why everyone is getting so upset over this. I thought it was great!

    Forget about the company names that are mentioned. It's about showing people that you shouldn't give up just because you were rejected.

    Those of you who have never been rejected in your career may not understand how it feels.

    Maybe they did suck at the interview or asked the wrong questions or whatever, but rejection is rejection and it hurts no matter what. This project illustrates that you don't have to give up your dream just because so and so doesn't want you.

      All of these people are obviously very smart, talented people. They're all clearly major league-level players. Seeing people who are clearly talented whine about how they didn't get a job at some of the toughest companies in the world does nothing to make others who would never dream of applying there feel any better about rejection.

      It's like seeing a baseball player whine about ending up with the Red Sox instead of the Yankees, while meanwhile you're struggling in Little League.

        Talented likely, but smart? I mean they willingly put themselves on this list.

        If you're struggling in Little League then maybe it's time to aim a little higher and do something about it.

        Listen, I get it....no one likes to hear about other people's success when they are not succeeding. I too have had my own serious struggles and rejections, but that doesn't give me the right say anything mean to the people who got the job over me.

      I might like it more if it wasn't so breathtakingly ugly. Seriously, who looks at that grid and typesetting and goes 'Yeah, that will do'.
