Which of us are job hunting?

A permanent position opened up at my company, in another department.

Hoping that if I ask my boss to recommend me, that I can at least get an interview. I have a leg up on other people in that I work here and have a great internal recommendation, and they won't look at most of the other lab temps because they have an unspoken policy that they don't hire their own temps unless they have an advanced degree. (WTF is up with that, by the way. Stupid policy. But it works in my favor since I have a M.S.)

My new boss said he KNEW he had to hire me because he could tell I was very genuinely nice and pure of spirit and that never happens in this town.

INTERVIEW ON MONDAY!!!!!!!! With the company I've been assigned to (as a temp) for almost 2 years.

I've been trying to get hired here countless times and NEVER made to an actual interview. I'm shook because my interviews have not been very fruitful. I had stopped looking for ANY jobs the last few months because I have gotten so discouraged.

I found an awesome suit at the thrift store for a great price a couple of weeks ago.....am DEFINITELY putting into the dry cleaners ASAP!!! I wish I had somebody to practice interviewing with. Monday morning I'm going to chant "I is kind, I is smart, I is important" to myself in the mirror before I leave for work......

I didn't get the job.. I'm so confused. I thought I interviewed great, I thought it was a good fit, I have a recommendation from a fairly high up exec (and personal friend of the exec I interviewed with). Is it just because of the recruiter's fee?

I am not going to cry at my desk. NOT. GOING. TO. CRY.

Maybe they ended up not hiring anybody!

I got an onsite interview with a good company around here.

It's a fairly entry level position, so it's going to be me against a bunch of college kids, I have a feeling. Hopefully they think my experience and masters degree is worth something.

I lost a client because they wanted to "groom" someone cheap onsite. Now I'm having to create leads and try to reignite interest from past clients.

Depressing and discouraging.

^^ Claudine, you are so talented and special. No matter whom they are "grooming", it's their loss.

Aw, thanks, curly ladies.

My contact there left, and that's what started the downturn. I really liked her.
