After weeks of struggling on unemployment checks, fruitless job applications, and general frustration, I finally got the kind of response I had been hoping and praying for.
A company that I'd applied to responded to my resume and wanted to schedule an interview the same day. I responded via email and phone call to indicate my availability all day and express my interest.
The next 2 days, I called and sent more emails indicating that I was still available for an interview and was still very much interested in the position.
Again, no response.
Four days later, I receive the following email:
"Thank you for applying to the position. Unfortunately, the position has been filled by another candidate deemed to be more fitting for the role."
Um...? Wouldn't you guys have liked to INTERVIEW me to find out if I was a better fit or not?!?!
I hate job hunting.
