Thanks Brewdude. I do appreciate the words of encouragement and comfort! To say the least, I am disappointed in the fact that I didn't get it. You are right though, I do enjoy my current job! It is a blessing and one that I'm thankful for. I was just trying to reach a little higher because I just wouldn't ever be able to retire if I maintained this job LOL.Brewdude":ydint2zb said:Well, don't that just suck big time!
Agree that an impersonal bulk e-mail like that is not particularly helpful when it comes to evaluating what you might have done different/better to secure the position. Seems to be the way of the corporate world these days. Easy out.
I'd take heart in the fact you progressed as far as you did in the interviewing process. And then spend some time evaluating the criteria they grilled you on and your responses, with a view to what you perceived they might be after.
You're probably already doing just this, but that's all I got. And if your heart is set on bettering yourself, this exercise can only help.
It still sucks though. Fortunately it seems you do like your present position, and that's important. Not like being stuck in a place you hate.
Best wishes in your next endeavor Kaitlyn.
But then again maybe it wouldn't be so bad being an 80 year old woman schooling young kids on tobacco when they come into the shop... "Oh yeah? You smoke 'English' blends? Do you even know what that means, kid? Come here, I'm gonna teach you a thing or two today!" *spoken in a warbling, old woman's voice*
