Wedding Woes

raaaaaage

So, I just heard from the guy I interviewed with back in January. Please remember that at the time he told me they were opening up several positions and he wanted me to meet with people and pick what I wanted to do, and they'd make that one of the positions.

Now "This position has spun around a bit internally and I think we've made a decision to not hire it (or at least not hire it in [this city])."

Oh, but they'll re-evaluate in 6 months, so I should keep in touch. It's really, really hard not to feel like they've just been giving me lip service this whole time and never liked me to begin with. I mean really, you went from opening a new department to not hiring anyone? Okay.

I feel like I've applied at every company in the area that I'd have even a little bit of an interest in working at, and the closest I've come to a lead is a drawn out blowoff from people who probably just didn't want to tell my friend they weren't going to hire me.

I'm sofucking frustrated, and now I kindof just want to go curl in a ball and cry.

    That is SO annoying.  I'm sorry. :(

    I will say that my company (which is really bad about stuff like this) WILL go from planning a whole new department and interviewing people for it to changing course completely and not hiring anyone after we invested TONS of hours in it.  Sometimes it's because the client backed out, but just as often it's because the owner has a new "vision" about what we need to be.  So, yeah, it's entirely possible that they aren't having the department. Their loss.

    Have you considered hanging out a shingle as an independent consultant? Social media integration for local TV networks or something?  People pay a lot of money for someone to generate a social media strategy and editorial calendar, yo. (I know that's not your end goal, but it's something you could totally do and be good at.)

    I'm sorry.  This sounds very frustrating.

    But on the other hand, dude sounded like a big flake and the whole place sounds disorganized.

    H has had two situations like this since we've been married where one person all but offers him a job, telling him they think he would be a great fit, I'll get right back to you on a good time for the final interview, etc...and then nothing.  Not even a rejection letter.  I think people sometimes just talk it up and don't really have the authority to be talking.

    I think it's ok to curl up in a ball for awhile.  I got a rejection email for a job I really liked and thought I'd had a good interview and I was upset.  I kind of wallowed in it that afternoon and then got up the next morning and kept going.

    I am sure there is something much better for you out there!
