I found this in my inbox after a LOUSY night at bowling: “John, thank you for reaching out to me. I did mention I would let you know one way or another in regard to the position and I need to report to you that the position has been filled. I needed to wait until the person showed up to be certain the position was filled. The new person started Monday.
I want to compliment you on your interviews and let you know that you were a very close second for this position. Should things not work out, I will try to reach out to you knowing that your status or interest in this position may very well change.
Thank you again for your interest in this position.”
This was one of the jobs that I had a second interview on, like a month ago. And didn’t get. I think I’m gonna drown my sorrows in a box of Girl Scout cookies…goodnight.
