TikTok user SwedishSwan has gone viral on TikTok after sharing how she responded to an early-morning job rejection email.
SwedishSwan’s job rejection
SwedishSwan uploaded her iconic video in the early morning of July 15. So early, in fact, that she’s still laying in bed, covered up with her blanket.
“I just woke up, and I got another rejection letter from a job I’ve applied for and I really kinda wanted this job,” she explained.
“So, I took a lesson from Gen Z and I sent them back this. ‘Y tho.’ Anyway, it worked because they sent me another email saying they do wanna interview me.”

While another commented: “As a recruiter, if someone sent that to me I would ABSOLUTELY want an interview.”
A third user shared a similar story: “Responding to a rejection email was literally how I got my job now.”
