A loss for words...

Last week I had the best interview of my life. After the interview was over they brought me in to HR for an orientation packet, they photo copied my id and I was asked where I was salary wise. Before I finished the packet, the HR person had to go and said to bring it home with me. The person I interviewed with, said everything would be alright and to give her a call on Wednesday. Again, the HR person said don't worry nothing is wrong, I am just pressed for time. At that time I asked the HR person, should I be worried I did not get the position and she said no, there is nothing to worry about, it is the end of the day and people were waiting to come into her office. As instructed on Wednesday I called and I was asked to call back tomorrow. I called back today and guess what, I was told I did not get the job. I was a bit taken back and asked, is it something I said or did. She replied no, we are interested in someone else. What does that mean? I am perplexed, how do you go from getting the job to no we want someone else?

I had this happen once where I drove 3 hours to an interview and was ready to relocate if necessary and they did the same thing rescinded the offer completely. I got no feedback as to why. I chalked it up as a corporate decision about overall business.

I experienced a similar situation. When i called back, i was informed I was overqualified. They could of called back at least as a courtesy.

It be like that some times... Take it in stride! Who knows maybe you dodged a major bullet especially if that's the way they deal with people. Maybe what you're meant for is still out there. Don't lose heart. Keep going! Good luck!

You weren’t the only one they interviewed. Perhaps they found someone with more experience? Don’t take it personally. It’s tough out there

That's it; someone else came along at the last minute, politics, etc.

Lying seems to be a way of life any more. (Situational ethics)

You are dealing with crazy people that wasted your time. It's just a game to them but not for you who is seriously about finding a job. That is their loss, not yours. You will find something better soon.

She sounds very unprofessional getting your hopes up then telling you that you don't have the job.
