Facebook rejection

Yesterday I received a letter from a Facebook recruiter that was quite nice and professional, but I am clearly not on the market for a new job right now.  I responded with a rejection letter:


Thanks for the connection request.  While I was impressed with your credentials, at this time I do not see an opportunity for me to leave my company to consider a position with Facebook.  Best of luck with your future endeavors.


I’m pretty much screwed now if the startup fails and I end up at Facebook’s door with my hat in hand.
