Quick question...

I'm drafting up an auto reply to go out to any candidate that submits a resume to us in response to ads.  I used one at my old firm but for the life of me can't remember what it said.  It is something like, "Thank you for submitting your resume.  We will review it and get in touch with if you if you meet our needs."  but sounded a lot better.  Has anyone used something like this before?
