A job rejection letter by KFC has gone viral on Twitter and for all the wrong reasons. The fast-food chain refused to hire a woman named Sophie Corcoran despite her prior work experience. Sophie posted a screenshot of the letter on Twitter. Users have called it “the cringe rejection ever”. The letter is filled with sentences related to chicken which, people felt, were inappropriate to convey a disapproval message. In addition, Sophie was rejected, although she had previously worked with KFC. In contrast, KFC’s letter mentioned that Sophie’s application was being rejected because she lacked work experience.
Despite working at KFC for two and a half years, I can’t even find a job at KFC in Durham because ‘I don’t have experience’. I leave Durham. I want to go back home now I just want my life back. pic.twitter.com/DUNx152Swo— Sophie Corcoran (@sophielouisecc) October 20, 2021

Sophie said in a Twitter post, “I can’t even find a job at KFC in Durham because ‘I don’t have experience’ despite working at KFC for two and a half years. I leave Durham. I want to go back home now.” ‘I just want my life back,’ along with the image of the letter sent by KFC.
She received a reply from KFC with the subject line, “Team member application at Thinford KFC.” The letter written by KFC read, “Hi Sophie, thank you for your application to Team KFC. We are glad that you are willing to join our flock, however, your skills at this time looking for colonels are not the secret recipe.” Huh.
