CN - I applied for a job, didn't get it and now I am just so depressed about what is happening now with the job. I need prayers.
I have worked for the same company for over 17 years. In a prior position there I was responsible for managing a certain type of project and about 4 months ago several people (including my last two managers) told me that they had decided to hire someone full time to do that and how I would be perfect for it (blah blah). I wouldn't have thought to apply for a different position but since they had encouraged me to apply, I did. My former managers thought so well of me and always rated me really well (performance wise) and with my experience, I felt I had a really good chance for the job. I didn't hear anything for 3 months and finally got an email last week that I didn't get a second interview.
I thought I would be fine with this. Although I felt that I was well qualified, I wasn't sure I wanted to switch positions and I was trusting God that this was best for me. And I was pretty fine last week.
Then this week I found out that someone less qualified and less tenured than me had been asked to apply for the position. When I told one of my co-workers that I didn't get the position and that someone else had been asked to apply, she confessed that she had also been asked to apply and although she didn't feel that she was at all qualified, she applied to spite our boss.
I have been so depressed about it yesterday and today. I've been really questioning why I'm working there and I am very hurt by this whole situation. Please pray for me to get out of this funk. Thanks ladies!
