Well, yesterday I got my rejection letter from the company I interviewed with on Friday. Just the usual generic “Thanks, but we’re going with candidates who better match …” yada yada yada.
No biggie, I guess, I just have to buck up and keep going. I mean, it’s not like I stopped looking or anything. But it’s a tease to get so close and miss like that. I guess in retrospect, it wasn’t that close. I didn’t even get past the screening interview, and I knew I’d be a little junior for the job requirements. Still, another in a long line of disappointments.
The problem is, it’s hard to keep pressing on. There are so few openings for which I’m qualified and which pay enough for me to consider them, and when I find those, I have a lot of competition. Things are brutal. But we’re not out of it yet, and I trust the Lord to keep doors and windows open as needed. And in a way, it’s a good thing. I had nothing else to say today, and was staring down the prospect of actually not blogging for a day.
So anyway, not much else to say. I know those who care will encourage with the platitudes of “It wasn’t the right job” or “The right thing will come along,” and I know they’re true. Don’t trouble yourself, y’all. Instead, if you have some experiences which seemed scary or disappointing at the time, but turned out to be grand opportunities you couldn’t see at first, tell me about those in the comments. Nothing heavy or dark, now; just the good stuff. Got one? I’d love to hear it today.
Share as you see fit, and thanks to all for your kind support and encouragement. I really, really appreciate it.
God bless, all.
