Same S?%!, Different Day

This morning I went on a fantastic job interview. Everyone there was awesome. Nice, smart, well-spoken, enthusiastic people. I could totally do this job, and it would be a great move for me, into an HR department. I left there feeling totally confident and psyched.

I went to my last three job interviews feeling totally confident and psyched too, and here I am, still unemployed.

It's getting old. It's a good thing I like meeting new people, and that I'm as confident and perky as I am, or the fatigue might start to show. How many great job interviews can I go on? It'd be one thing if the interviews were so-so, but these are all WONDERFUL. The managers gush about me to my staffing agent afterward. They tell me how impressed they are, they introduce me to everyone around, they talk shop with me, it's always just so awesome. And then....

I don't even get feedback. I send a thank-you note, to which I receive no response, and then I never hear anything from them again. They just vanish without so much as a wave, a parting glace, a form letter. Whoosh.

So, another fabulous interview. Now I wait.

Wish me luck.

I hate when places don't even have the decency to say, "no, thanks." That's just common courtesy, if you've gone to the trouble of coming in for an interview!

Anyhow, good luck!
