When you dont get the job you thought you were

Turn that frown upside down. The real job your meant for is a step closer now. Rejection is the new degree. Phone Post 3.0

i literally just made a post like this. I am about to be laid off though so Im kinda fucked.

j-money - I had an interview in Dec of last year. I was sure I was going to land this job right after I graduated. It was a panel interview with 3 people. They tell me "really great answer there" during the interview. One of the guys is escorting me out of the building and asks me if I'm interested in the job and if I feel it's for me. Two months later, I get an email saying I didn't get the job.
That can sometimes be the interviewer jumped the gun or got vetoed from higher up. I once had a candidate that I thought was perfect. Told HR to pull the trigger. My SVP insisted I take an internal candidate because the head count had to be kept flat for budget reasons.

Basically, unless the CEO tells you it's a lock, it's not a lock. And even then something could still happen.

I once had a great interview and everything was smooth sailing. Was told to expect an offer next week. One week, nothing. I call. No reply. I finally get a call back and HR tells me that the VP I interviewed with suddenly died and they blew up the organization and the position was eliminated in the reorg. Shit happens. Phone Post 3.0

I've been on 2nd shift for 6 years. I've also been on a list to go to 1st the entire time. It's a senority thing with a group of 4 guys per shift. A month ago we got a new manager. They posted the 1st shift job last week. I was next on the list to go. Walked into his office confused why it's posted. He knew nothing about the list and is giving it to a guy whos a back up in the lab because he's already a 1st shifter. My boss doesn't want to break up the teams while we are doing trials for Ford.

Needless to say I'm gonna fuck those trials up all to shit.  After 6 years waiting I wanted to Wreck It Ralph his office when he acted like it was for the better of the "team".

When you are not mad set a a time and ask for some coaching. use that time to ask what you should work on to be considered next time . Phone Post 3.0

Yeah, I figured the guys on the panel liked me, but someone above them choose not to hire me. I really thought I had the job. Not to dwell on the past, but that job would have changed my life completely.

If you were that close you'll get another turn at bat Phone Post 3.0
