A determined teenager who landed a group call with Aldi after she refused to answer no when she was initially rejected is a step closer to finding a job.
Jessica Irving, from Mount Druitt in western Sydney, has applied for a Retail Assistant position at her local store, but was told she was unsuccessful in getting an interview.
She decided to reply to the email with the message & # 39; I reject your rejection & # 39; and her tactics worked incredibly and she was invited to a group interview.
After the group interview on Saturday, Mrs. Irving told Daily Mail Australia that she was convinced that she would receive a one-to-one interview.
& # 39; It went really well … I went into the interview with a mentality to stand out, & # 39; she said.

After Saturday's group interview, Ms. Irving told Daily Mail Australia that she was convinced she would receive a one-to-one interview, which she did
The 18-year-old then received an e-mail on Tuesday morning saying that she had indeed been successful.
& # 39; We would like to take you to the next phase of the recruitment process and invite you to attend a one-to-one interview with a member of Aldi Stores & # 39 ;, according to the email.
Mrs. Irving said she was & # 39; amazing & # 39; felt to move on to the next phase of the interview process.
Her job search went viral last week when she went to Facebook on September 3 to post her unique approach to job placement.
Mrs. Irving received a letter of refusal from the supermarket giant with the text: & # 39; Thank you for taking the time to apply for the position of Retail Assistant at Aldi.
Ms. Irving was shocked to receive the answer and said she can't believe it even worked & # 39;

& # 39; After careful consideration, we must unfortunately inform you that you have not moved to the next phase in this case. & # 39;
After she received the e-mail, Irving answered with explanation that she did not accept their rejection.
& # 39; Although my application was rejected, I have been applying for more than a year without success & # 39 ;, wrote the 18-year-old.
& # 39; My skills are similar to your store, with the ability to be exceptionally fast to scan items like any Aldi team member.
& # 39; I am proud of my impressive sales skills and can describe myself as very convincing and effective.
& # 39; In fact, so convincing that I would like to reject your rejection confidentially. Thank you for letting me join the team. I will not disappoint you. Until Monday. & # 39;
She then received an e-mail stating that she did not have to go to the store because her application was unsuccessful.
But on the morning of September 3, she woke up to receive another notification from the supermarket that she had been invited to a group interview.
She posted excitedly on Facebook and said she had a & # 39; mesh in unemployment & # 39; had found.
& # 39; I suddenly woke up this morning and they had selected me for a group interview & # 39 ;, Irving told Daily Mail Australia.

& # 39; I think a different manager – they must have been impressed by my approach. & # 39;
Mrs. Irving was shocked to receive the answer and said she can't believe it even worked.
& # 39; When applying, I thought I would be a very strong candidate. I even waited almost a year to apply because of their 18-plus rule, & she said.
& # 39; It's one of my local stores, so being rejected was quite a bummer and I didn't want to request a store so far away, so I thought I'd try and it worked surprisingly. & # 39;
Mrs. Irving will attend a group interview with Aldi on Saturday.
Daily Mail Australia contacted Aldi for comments, but they refused to comment because the company wanted to respect the recruitment process and give Mrs. Irving a fair chance.
