Re: Job interviews-Do you get angry, depressed or resigned
It is indeed a frustrating, and often depressing, task.... and in my 20 years as a contractor / consulting engineer, I have had to go through the process multiple times per year.
Just before Christmas, I interviewed for some contract work at a nearby company.... it was a match absolutely made in heaven; their technology is precisely the kind of stuff I've had 2 decades of experience with, and in which I accomplished several industry 'firsts'. The interviewer was a really nice guy, who I connected with immediately... he admitted that I had the advantage of not needing any 'training' or 'familiarization' with their technology, he was amenable to my proposed arrangement regarding worksites, and didn't flinch when I quoted my rate.
Yet, I haven't heard from them.
I don't know if it's simply because the holiday season has put most hiring on hold (which others tell me must be the case), or if, for some reason, they've decided not to engage me. I'm hoping it's the former, and will email him on Monday to see if I'm still 'alive' there.
