I'm gonna make it short and sweet because I feel like I've told this story many, many times over the last 30 hours, but I didn't get the job. I knew as I was leaving that I probably wouldn't get it because it seemed like I didn't have the right experience that they were looking for, and I got a call from HR today confirming that. I really appreciate that they called me so quickly to let me know so I didn't have to wonder. I'm sort of annoyed that I wasted my time/ink/nice resume paper/gas running to a post office that hadn't picked up the mail yet to send thank you letters. Oh well. I'm scheduled to take a civil service on August 18, so we'll see how that goes. This weekend I get to go to Rusty's and I must get drunk at least one night to reward myself for going through the ups and downs I've had over the past few weeks.

Thanks, everyone, for the well wishes. I have the best blog friends ever!

Well, rats! I guess there's a better job for you out there.

Ditto what B. may not have had the experience they needed, but I still contend that they've missed out on a fantastic employee.


Remember that I love you. Can't wait to see you in two days!

We'll definitely get worries there. :P

Oh man! Maybe they'll take you when you've got the right experience. It was nice of them to call so soon.

Have fun getting drunk!

I agree with the others...that sucks, but there's something else better for you out there.

I remember getting bummed when something similar happened years ago, but it was the getting my hopes up after he interview that didn't pan out that was the impetus to quit a job I might have stayed in otherwise--which led to a better job than the one I was disappointed that I missed.

Good thoughts going your way...

Don't worry about it Jenny! At the very least you had the opportunity to make a great impression on someone who could provide you with another opportunity down the road. You also honed up your interviewing skills so the next time you'll be a shoo in.

Keep your head up high!

I've been going through some ups and downs myself...and since I don't drink anymore, I'm thinking about buying a really expensive purse.
