again......rejection letter

By timbuk2ca ·
Sorry. I'm talking about this site;
which is a sample rejection letter to send applicants who didn't get the job.
I can't open it with Word, notepad or Adobe?

by timbuk2ca In reply to ZIP file

I download it and unzip but it gives me the error
"This file is too large for notepad to open, would you like to use Wordpad to read this file?"
If I say "YES", it opens but is all scrambled and such. (unreadable) What other program might open this?

Dear John,

Thank you for taking the time to meet with my staff and me on [date] to talk about the [name of job opening] position and discuss your qualifications.

I wanted to let you know that we will be continuing to look for candidates to fill the role of [job opening]. Even though you have a great deal of experience [mention two or three things about the candidate that were initially interesting or promising], we have decided that, overall, it would not be a good fit.

[This paragraph is optional: In it, you can mention one or two of the major stumbling blocks that surfaced in the interview process. See text for example.] As we discussed in the interviews, the ideal job candidate would need to be able to travel much more frequently than your family schedule would permit.

Thank you for your interest in XYZ Company. We wish you all the best in your job search.

I just tried BOTH the download links on the page, they both opened up a Download page then clicking THAT link downloaded the files. Both word AND Adobe opened up just fine.

Have you been able to download but not open them?
