I'm just not wanted in Seoul

More bad news. Another rejection letter, this time from Seoul National University:

Dear Professor Kevin Kim,

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your interest in the Full-time Visiting Professor position, and for your time and effort preparing the application materials. The selection committee has completed its review of qualified candidates. We regret to inform you that the committee was not able to recommend you to the administration of the University.

We had a large number of extraordinary applications, and the competition was fiercer than anticipated. While you are obviously qualified, other applicants more closely fit the needs of the Department at this time.

We appreciate the interest that you have shown in the Department, and wish you success in pursuit of your career goals.

Department of English Language Education

Seoul National University
Seoul, 151-748, Korea

A form-letter rejection. But at least, unlike Sungkyunkwan University, SNU actually bothered to send me notification. As disappointed as I am, I still appreciate the professionalism.
