Yesterday I received an email from the company housed in the Broadway Tech Centre campus. I didn’t get the job. Since I really need to land some sort of steady employment soon, this outcome was very disappointing.
In the email, the HR person stated that “At this time, we have decided to move forward with another candidate that we felt was more suitable for the role.” I’m trying to be good and avoid crying “ageism!” According to a Forbes article, this is one of the top three reason companies cite for why a candidate didn’t get the job. Still, it’s another closed door I have to deal with.
I feel conflicted – half of me was very disappointed, but the other half was relieved that I won’t have to deal with 12-hour shifts starting at 8:30 p.m. – but the 3 days on/3 days off would have been nice. If I’m being honest with myself, we were probably not a good fit for one another.
I’m focussing on the positives and getting myself back on track in terms of the types of jobs I’m applying for. And it was worth it (well, almost) to discover the Broadway Tech Centre with its amazing landscaping.
