I think the "true" point is getting lost in translation. It is not that she was rejected one, ten, or thirty times. It is the audacity of an organization to reject your application; then turn around and suggest that if you pay 500$ for their job fair that your chances of employment are increased. Would you feel differently if she had been rejected only once, and then offered the grand opportunity to join this ever so exclusive job fair, that will now have her application taken seriously?...No! The point isn't her persistence with this one organization. In fact, I imagine someone who finds themself unemployed, facing a mountain of debt, and being told yet again they are overqualified doesn't spend their time calculating the number of times they have applied for multiple jobs within a large organization. Instead I imagine their calculations are reserved for the desperation and exhaustion of their checking account. In all honesty, It disgusts me to imagine a world full of children whom are the byproducts of such passive parents that they not only accept rejection, but then stand idly by when offered such a disgraceful opportunity....Hello, I am stupid and I got rejected, but then I was offered the opportunity to pay 500$ so I can assuredly get rejected again, even Forest Gump was that big of an idiot. TRUTH: Companies have positions to be filled, isn't it enough that most corporations receive huge tax breaks for job expansion. No! They need to drain the rainy day fund out of people hanging onto a rapidly fraying rope, clinging to desperation and a dwindling sense of hope. We are unemployed! Not disadvantaged! And we are absolutely not here to be taken advantage of; or pad the pockets of, in Ms. Meyer’s words, ************ with no conscience.
Having been on the receiving end of over 300 "thanks but no thanks" replies to my applications over the past year I only wonder what makes her very UN "PC" response worthy of such attention. If all of us unemployed professionals who are "Smiling in Hell" were to express our real feelings after acres of rejection we'd just put a final coat of caulk on our careers (mine of over 30 years) and not become a web-celeb.

Like this woman , got spine
Writing a letter to an organization and childishly inviting them to "suck your d***" because you're pissed that they refused to hire you for the 31st time is indeed a good, if sad, example of many things, but a display of spine as you put it isn't really one of them. Perseverance is a positive trait for anyone to possess, but as some others have pointed out previously on this board any normal person would have gotten the message and moved on with their life somewhere between the fifth and tenth rejection. Unless she was attempting to pay homage to Dave Winfield for some unfathomable reason it's safe to say that making 31 different attempts to get hired by the San Diego Padres organization is just plain bizarre.

More detail about Taylor Grey Meyer's career struggles. And she explains that it wasn't the rejections that pushed her over the edge, but the invitation to spend $495 at the job fair....http://www.thelawinsider.com/insider-news/tli-interview-taylor-grey-meyer-and-the-counter-offer-heard-round-the-world/
I admire her gumption in doing this. I have also been searching fruitlessly for a job for 10 months. Either I'm overqualified in some respects or not qualified enough. I can't even land a minimum wage job. For those saying she is a bitch and apparently is not right for any job. Well I don't think you should speak unless you have been in her shoes. Try going months on end sending out tons of applications and being rejected by companies or not hearing back at all. Experience the utter hopelessness that starts setting in after each week that goes by without finding a job and trying to survive.
Assuming she doesn't have a d***, I'd bang her. If in fact she does have one, then I'd have to decline.
Hmm, you sure about that? You strike me as the kind of guy who could overlook such a detail just fine.
I wouldn't hire her either if she's not smart enough to know she doesn't HAVE a d***
Hey, for a woman to say this, it's just an ironic play on a sentiment that is said often by men. It's meant to be funny, but for her, it was obviously a way to air her frustration. Of course she knows she doesn't have a penis... if you can't get the humor in this, then you may be the stupid one
Maybe it's because you're a bitch?
