I sent in a job application to Lucasfilm a few months ago and I received this email notification yesterday in my spam folder.

May the Force…well…you know,
The Lucasfilm Recruiting Team
I love how they end the email with “May the Force… well… you know”. It almost seems they’re embarrassed for over using this famous phrase. I guess that’s one of the perks of working in a creative environment – you get to be creative and original, unlike the organisations which I’ve worked in before, where all official correspondences need a certain air of formality.
Anyway, let’s hope the Force will be with me in my job search.
