Sounds like I didn't get the job...

Color me bummed.

(On edit: Official word has not come down, it's just the rumors I'm hearing.)

3. I know the feeling.

I just saw a new advertisement for one of the jobs for which I interviewed last week. This after stressing out over it for over a week. It may or may not be a second position with the same title, as the new ad was for a temporary position. The one for which I interviewed was not. But, I don't have a good feeling about it. It was a state job, so who knows what the hell is going on.

8. The problem is...

It's a different department in the same place I've worked for 25 years. Just makes me feel worse knowing that.

9. Then you will see who they did hire and you will know why you weren't

Maybe whoever makes the final decision, already had a candidate in mind and the interviews were just a formality. Please don't let this discourage you, I know of several times the job wanted wasn't the right one, but the circumstances led to a better job.

11. Official word...

I didn't get the job. They offered it to someone in the company with more experience in the field. While I understand it from a business standpoint, I'm still pretty bummed about it.

That said, there is a claim that they still want me to pick up some hours to 'get my feet wet'. I will believe it when it actually happens, though.

On the bright side, if they give you the get your feet wet thing, you know that they think well of you.
