Fountain at Broadway Tech Centre

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 […]

Broadway Tech Centre

Since my face-to-face interview of January 10th, I have had three telephone interviews that segued into radio silence.
