No News Yet - Contract Job (Didn't Get It)
Tuesday, April 02, 2013
Update - I didn't get the contract job.
I'll admit it. I was in a bad mood when I wrote the original blog venting about being "rejected" not once, but twice in the space of a week. Did I really fail my TSA airport assessment ? Honestly, I feel the sequester had more to do with my failure than my actual interview. Why didn't they just cancel my interview ? Who knows.
And I didn't get the contract job. I'm disappointed, but I'm also in a better place since writing the original blog. I was one of TWO people called in for the interview. The fact is, one of us was going to be disappointed. Did I lose the job ? No, I didn't lose the job. The manager chose the person they felt was the best fit for that team.
What was the point of blogging ? It was a way to let off steam, vent my emotions. It seems that some days, you aren't allowed to be human. You're expected to be politically correct 24/7.
Personally, I find venting (blogging) cathartic. I really did feel a whole lot better letting out all those negative emotions. As all my wonderful spark buddies noted, it's better to let out the negative emotions than it is to hold them in.
