I didn’t get the job. He SAID it was really close. He SAID I interviewed well.(They ALWAYS say that) But that the other person had more ‘contacts’ in the area, so that’s why she got it. (go figure). She wasn’t very subtle about it. She got the phone call and rushed out with the call, then came back into the office to whisper excitedly to her boss, then went outside and screamed ‘yesss!’ (or her friend did). All before I got my phone call. That seemed a little insensitive to me, but I can understand she was excited.
Never mind eh? In a way it’s a relief – I don’t have to cope with a big change and I don’t have that management responsibility. But I am a little put out that they didn’t think I was good enough for the job. And the fact that the other person hasn’t actually done the job before (whereas I have). And I guess I’ll be expected to train her and cover for her while she’s getting up to speed.
At the minute, I’m very disheartened with the company. I like my agents and some days I really like my job. But management just sucks sometimes. And they’ve now rebranded the company and given it a REALLY stoopid name. And I mean REALLY stoopid. I think it is going to end up in one of those ‘Biggest Rebranding disasters of the 21st Century’ programs. It’s THAT BAD.
I have chocolate, veggie burger and chips, and some Pringles and pickled onion space raiders. I’m going to sit in my pyjamas tonight and just drown my sorrows in some Castlemaine 4x. Go me!
Ooh! But what was good about today was that some people were REALLY lovely to me. One of them even bought me some flowers in commiseration. How sweet is that?? That made me feel better about it all.
