I'll end the suspense

I didn't get the job. I know I shouldn't be upset because I really wasn't qualified, but I am and that's all I can say about it. Whatever. I don't want to talk about it, so if I haven't called or emailed to discuss it personally, that's why.

On to another topic: Have you ever wanted something and not gotten it and it turned out to be a blessing?

I have and that is why I am trying to put all of this job nonsense into perspective. Some of you ladies who read this blog were in the very same sorority that I was in. Well, when I got my bid, I was miserable. I didn't want to be in that sorority because all of my friends were in another one. I felt sorry for myself and probably worried the actives because they could tell I was less than thrilled. The thing is, it was one of the best things that happened to me in college. I met a lot of people that I remain friends with to this day and I think I had a much better time in the group that I ended up in than any other sorority I could have been in. It was a good fit for me. There are other examples of me not getting what I want and everything turning out for the best, but this is my favorite example because it was one of the most rewarding. With that said, sappy girl time is officially over for 2006.

Just remember that it doesn't reflect on you as a person. You are fabulous and something fabulous will come your way. At least you are looking for a real job...mine is just for the summer and then I will be back on the job search. Something good will come along. Just hang in there.

I like the way you put it into perspective. Maybe it is because something even better is just around the corner.

You now Katie, I got a bid from the sorority I wanted, but I ended up absolutely hating it. I was always kind of jealous of your sorority- it seemed like so much more fun with much cooler people.

This is a very good perspective to have and you can always just consider this interview practice and practice is good for you :)

I agree with k8e. Interviewing practice will only help you prepare for an even better job that is destined to come your way.
