Okay, I knew that I wasn’t going to get the job as soon as I saw their listing sans agency, but as a job hunter, the LEAST I deserve is confirmation. So yesterday morning, I e-mailed the recruiter to see if he’d heard (since, I was told I’d get their decision on Tuesday). Three hours later, when he still hadn’t replied, I called the contact directly and asked. Of course, she didn’t remember me and had to go check, then said simply that “unfortunately, you weren’t selected”. Okay, I was very close to asking if it had anything to do with their decision to go without an agency and lower the amount they were offering SIGNIFICANTLY. But I didn’t.
My biggest pet peeve? Hiring managers and folks who don’t bother to inform you of their decisions. Even after TAKING A FREAKING TEST!!! If I give them that kind of time, the LEAST they can do is thank me.
Arrggh! Moving on…
P.S. I think I’ll hop on the bus and head for Tartine’s this morning. Heh.
