Read between the lines and you can probably figure out I didn't get into the next round for the dream job. I lamented a bit by text to DD1 and DH. I whined on the phone to DH as well. I felt disappointed, had a little pity party in my head driving home. By the time I was in my driveway, I was good. Thinking back, I answered every question honestly,accurately, and without pretense. There is nothing I could have done differently. Of course I had to get the news on a Tuesday! They just weren't looking for me to put forward. I'm annoyed that I didn't actually ever meet the client. That seems a bit disingenuous since the recruiter contacted me after the closing period and had several rushed turn around times. That's how recruiters work I guess. I can honestly say though I will not work with one again if solicited for anything short of a dream job.
I love the picture above. The first part, the touchy feely, it will be ok message. The bottom half though, is funny, yet empowering. I don't need to wait for someone to open doors for me, my hands work perfectly well to open one myself. Better yet, how about I build a door and create something entirely new to walk through. Thanks for all the words of encouragement. On the bright side, I got three blog posts out of the saga.
