I had a great phone interview last Tuesday with a director from a company that was extremely close to the job I was doing before I got laid off. I emailed them directly on September 30, then found the same posting on LinkedIn, so I applied again. I then followed up on my original email. During the interview he mentioned that it was my follow up that got me the interview because when he read my original resume he thought I was overqualified. At the end of our interview he reassured me that I would get a call back either way, because he strongly believed that a personal follow up was the right thing to do. How did I find out that they are no longer considering me? By an email I received this morning from LinkedIn. Sorry for babbling, but I’m beyond depressed and frustrated.
