Some Days

"You were a very strong candidate, but in the end we decided to go with someone who had a little bit more experience. If anything else opens up you'll be at the top of our list."

"Oh, great. Thanks."

Some days you just have to keep pushing ahead.

Today is one of them.

That's right...keep pushing ahead. There are many places who prefer to hire young go-getters and train them in their own fashion. Sometimes too much experience is not seen as an attribute.

Yep. Now you have the interview experience. Next time you'll have exactly what they want.

Merry Christmas, BB!

Peace <3

You know you're good, and they said so too. This must be very disappointing, but hang in there, and keep taking a shot at good opportunities until one pans out.

Sorry to hear this news, it is a right pain in the ass for you for sure, but as you say, you just have to keep pushing ahead. Good luck with that.

Wishing you all the very best for Christmas and the new year.

Damn! But I've been in the employer's position and I know how 'we' think...don't despair...the 'more experienced' person is often a huge disappointment and they may be back to you sooner than you think!
