Better luck next time

"After careful consideration, we have extended an offer to another candidate, who has accepted. This was a very difficult decision. We appreciate your time, and wish you all the best in your future endeavors."

Cal, will you hire me to wrangle the llamas at the compound? I can feed the duck. Or cook it. Or just hold it and cry.

  1. Oh, dear, Maybelle. I'm sorry. All I can say is keep trying (on all plans, A through, if necessary, Z). But yes, it's fair game to have a good cry (and a stiff drink, or a pint of ice cream, or whatever works) first.

  5. Aw, damn it!! I want to cry, too. Maybelle, hang in there. You wouldn't want to work for those bastards anyway. There's a great job out there...it just isn't ready for you yet. Big hugs.

    So sad to hear this news. What Cass said (and Cynic, too). Keep trying and one of your plans will work out.

  7. Aw, damn, Maybelle. I'm so sorry.

    I know something good is coming for you, even if it's not apparent now.

    Hugs.

  8. I'm sorry too. I'm rooting for you, if it matters.

    When I was on the job market, I used to tell myself that every rejection was one step closer to the acceptance. I'm not sure I believed it, but it helped sometimes. So did drinking and hours at the gym. I was one buff depressed alcoholic.

    Here's to your courage and perseverance.

    1. +1 to PG. And Chiltepin's optimism / coping mechanisms sound like just what the doctor ordered.
