Two weeks ago, I had an interview. That job was one that I really wanted and I thought the interview went well.
Last week, the hiring manager was out of the office and he told me to call if I hadn't heard anything by the 9th.
So, I called.
He said "That position has been filled...umm...I was just getting ready to call you."
First of all, if you work in HR, just call people. It's easy not to be a jerk.
Secondly, why can't I get hired? This isn't a pity question. I'm serious.
My resume is good, my experience is good, I interview well. It just doesn't make sense to me. I'd hire myself.
I've been considering taking things off of my resume. I've applied to some jobs without my graduate degree and internships. I think those things plus the work in Iraq, hurt me at this last interview.
At the end of it, he said, "Well, after all of the excitement in Iraq and London, this job would probably be pretty boring."
I don't really have a point here, I just wanted to rant a little.
