    Doesn't that just piss you off!?!?!? Employers never seem to have the same "sense of urgency" that job seekers have. /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    I thought the interview went great. After talking a few minutes I was very calm, he asked a few questions, I asked a few, I tossed out some ideas for problems they where having and past problems I had at other jobs and how I got them fixed. Over all we talked for probley an hour during the interview. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif
    about the last 10 minutes we talked about parking downtown Indy, health care plans, their pay ranges, when I could start and then he said he had one more person coming in this week then he was going to call everyone on Monday and let them know.

    Well Monday came and went, Monday night I sent him an email checking in, Tuesday morning I was going to call but got sidetracked, then Wed he tried to call when we where gone and he sent me an email saying that interviews ran over into Monday and Tuesday, then a couple hours later another email saying they hired someone else.... /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    OH well, thats life I guess /forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif

    /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif Yup, that's the way it goes... I had several interviews that I thought went well, but in this market you're competing with so so so many other people that even though you're highly qualified, there's probably someone else with just one or two other qualifications that put them just a bit ahead of you in line... I got really frustrated and assumed I was going to end up working at Taco Bell for the rest of my life... I finally got another Engineering Job... I took a pretty good pay cut, but I have a lot less responsibility, work a lot less hours, and enjoy my new job a lot more. And most of all, I'm finally employed! It's just a matter of time! Keep hunting and keep your confidence up. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif
