And, three for three on the job front

Just heard back from the last of the three job possibilities, the one where I actually got called back to a second interview. They said (as usual, lately) "Thanks but no thanks, we chose somebody else." I was kind of expecting it, actually, seeing as how I hadn't heard anything in awhile from them, but there was still that little inkling of hope trying desperately to stay alive for the past couple of weeks. It's just so frustrating and disappointing. I wish I could ask these interview panels what I'm doing wrong or what isn't working for them, so that I could change it for the next one, but of course they won't say a word for fear of legal reprisals. I just need to know what I'm doing to mess up these opportunities so that I can stop doing it and get a stinkin' job offer. My federal extension on unemployment only lasts another month or two, and then what?? I was so hopeful that one of those three interviews would pan out; I was even thinking I might have to juggle job offers, but to not have even one? What a huge let-down.

Gotta stay positive, but man it's getting tough.


  1. Hi honey....so sorry to hear that you didn't get that job. I don't think you are doing anything wrong...you are fantastic! There are just SO many people out there looking for jobs. There's a lot of competition for each job opening. Hang in there....what about that company that you told us about where they had another opening that they were going to interview for....but a little higher position? Maybe you were OVER qualified for the lower position....did you call them for an interview....or however that works?

  2. I'm hoping that's the case with this one; it just closed yesterday, so I'm hoping to hear back this week. Just give me something to work with here, people, sheesh!
