The Job Search

I submitted a resume to an online ad last Friday morning. Less than 10 minutes later I received a response asking when I could come in for an interview. After a couple more e-mails back and forth, we settled on 3:00pm Friday afternoon. I spent almost two hours with the guy that afternoon.

I was invited back for an interview with a sales manager on Tuesday morning.

I was invited back again for an interview with the general manager Wednesday morning. In that session I was told that the next step was to meet with the company president. I was told to expect an e-mail containing a link to an online personality profile test. I left the office figuring I had it nailed. I was getting excited about my new position.

I sent my thank you e-mails yesterday just like I have at each step along the way.

After the first two interviews, I received e-mails telling me when my next appointment was almost before I got back home.

Yesterday I never received the link to the online test. I called this afternoon. Typical of today’s corporate environment, I got voice mail.

I got an e-mail a few minutes ago telling me they’ve decided to move on with other candidates. Fuck.
