Friday June 29 A job I didn't get

The HR woman from Company B (the company with the free parking and casual dress) called. I didn't get the job. I knew that was going to happen. The hiring (or, as we say here, the highering) manager had told me she wanted someone with more experience in financial services.

But - the HR woman told me I was a great candidate - wait - it just struck me - I bet she says that to everyone - and that we should stay in touch.

I feel so cheap.


  1. But, perhaps you should touch base with her periodically. You've got some current experience (albeit at a lower level of responsibility) and they might have other jobs pop up. A note now and then might be a good idea.

    I'd consider one now telling her what you are doing at your company, but. expressing a continuing interest in her company. Surely youcan come up with a small list of things about her company that suit you well. ... and not thefree parking!

    Just a thought...

    1. You know, Webb, that's a good idea. We did connect on LinkedIn. I can send her a note that way. I'll do it now.
