Life Lessons: The Job That Didn’t Pan Out & What It Taught Me by Felicia Brantner
I went through three stages of interviews. Almost three weeks of time spent in anxiety and wait all just to receive bad news:
I didn’t get the job.
I’m a stay-at home-mom. I wasn’t looking for this. It fell in my lap. But somehow after three interviews and weeks of anxious waiting with positive feedback at every turn, they needed more experience, even though they had my resume from day one.
The real deal breaker was the size of workload I would be expected to take on. Despite the fact that I offered very intuitive, advantageous skills, they just couldn’t approve without that. I understand their decision, but I am disappointed especially after I had such positive feedback over such a considerable period of time. But bearing that all in mind, I seriously feel renewed! I had a “soul shake” here! I realized I am ready to do something more with my abilities and I feel like this is coming soon for me.
I am hopeful. I just updated all employment pages online with my current resume and I feel like a tiger! I truly believe that disappointment can lead to other opportunities if you harness the energy in the right way!
Go get ‘em, girls!
