Positive Omlet vibes, please - more vibes needed!

Recommended Posts

Goodness me, this has gone on a long time! :shock: The very best of luck to you - fingers, toes and paws are all tightly crossed for you in the LB household.

Thank you everybody - all over now!

 

It wasn't an interview so much as a written exam, three written scenarios and a pad and pen, and half an hour to get on with it. I think they were trying to establish just how steep my learning curve might be and, thankfully, all the situations were similar to ones I'd encountered when I used to specialise in this area. I could at least give a clear indication of the direction I'd take. Hopefully clear enough :pray:

 

Should get a decision next week sometime, but it's taken so long already I'll not be holding my breath.

 

OK to uncross fingers, toes, claws and paws now :D

No still keeping them closed until you have the contract. Well done though :D

Sadly, I can't. They have been crossed for so long I have cramp in them :wink:

 

I do hope, after all you have had to do, there is a positive outcome for you.

And after all that - I didn't get the job :(:(:(

 

One of the scenarios I did not do at all well on (I had always said my knowledge was out of date), though I did ok on the others and they've decided they want someone who can do the job immediately rather than have to learn it. The feedback was very positive but I really am very disappointed. Would probably have been less so if I hadn't come so close. Somehow it's worse when it's grabbed away from you at the last moment than if you'd never been in the running at all :(

 

I know I'll get over it and I will come to see it as a good sign that I did come so close, but right now I'm very dejected and off to find more coffee and possibly a muffin.

 

Thank you so much for all the positive vibes and support, and here's hoping for a happier outcome next time :pray:

I am so sorry DC that after all that effort and worry you did not get the job.

 

Perhaps it is for the best in the long run, at times it is funny how things work out in the long term.

 

Enjoy your coffee and muffin, you deserve one and think of the positives.

That is gutting! Especially after such a long wait to hear. I am so sorry for you. Maybe chalk it up to experience and that way you will be even more prepared for your next interview. Enjoy the muffin, or hope you enjoyed the muffin. Onwards and upwards!

So sorry to hear you didn't get it..I've been following the thread and really hoping for you, as others have said though all these things are good experience. I was between jobs for 5 months once, then got a job which was a disaster. Luckily the right one came up shortly after and I've been there since (6 years now) so in the end things do work out. Good luck for the next one x

Several muffins and much coffee later, I had a bit of good news yesterday, in that I was told my temporary contract here will be extended until Christmas :D. Still hoping for that permanent job here :pray:

Well what a bummer to have to wait so long to be passed over again. But then the person they took on probably thought it was not a good place and so quit early in the game, so perhaps it is a blessing in disguise. And breathing space to Christmas - and just maybe it will all work out for the best! Hope so and fingers will be virtually crossed otherwise I'd never get anything done! :wink::pray:
