Confused and Frustrated
I applied to hundreds of jobs in the last couple of weeks, had been looking for a job for months. Finally got a couple of interviews lined up in December, had an offer from a job which was mediocre and felt wasn’t the one, and another job offer from an amazing Tech Company through a temp agency. The manager at the tech company loved me and told me I got the job right away and said I would start in January. The job would be temp to perm with a great possibility of working permanent. So I turned down the other job offer, gave my two weeks, signed all my paper work including offer letter, and passed a drug screen. The last and final step was submitting my I9 with a form of an ID. The temp agency kept pushing my start date because of the government shut down my I9 wouldn’t be able to be verified, knowing other companies were hiring employees with Everify. I patiently waited, and today I get a phone call from the temp agency recruiter saying the manager who interviewed me got fired and that no one is working in that department, also because of the government shut down the manger didn’t tell the agency they actually do bids with the government. I am so frustrated because I gave my two weeks and turned down another offer, now I have to go back to keep applying and going to other interviews. Sorry just venting I know things could be worst hope everyone is having a great day.
