Absolutely gutted.

    I actually had a heart-in-mouth, pulse-racing physical response to that. We’re feeling it every step of the way.

      I had exactly the same when I saw the letter on the mat this morning with the three pointed star printed on it.

      As soon as I saw it I knew it couldn’t be good news…

    Aww, mate. Thats terrible. I’m really feeling for you in this blog.

    I know it sounds lame, but it just wasn’t for you then. Something, somewhere is. As sad as I am for you, dearest CC, and I really am, at least someone got a job this week, possibly someone without the other skills you have. And almost certainly he doesn’t have the blonde. 😉

    Damn and drat. We all share your disappointment, if that isn’t too weak a word.

    Will you ask for feedback?

    I’ve had the same experience at one interview.

    The worse thing is that countless studies have shown (I’d recommend having a look at Malcolm Gladwell’s book Outliers where he backs this up) that people who really excel at their given jobs are usually the ones who wanted their positions the most.

    An motivated but inexperienced employee is generally a much better bet than an unmotivated but experienced one.
