Forgot to ask for vibes...

  • Forgot to ask for vibes...

    ...Which was clearly an error.

    I had a telephone interview today which I was dreading as I don't really like talking on the phone! It was for a graduate scheme I was hoping to get and then ask if I could defer for 2 years (I applied before I got pregnant). Because I was dreading it I sort of put off thinking about it until, well, this morning really.

    I had to give a short presentation... thought I made some good points but also gabbled a bit, 2 minutes was nowhere near enough time. And then I obviously didn't go into enough detail with any of the other questions she asked me, because she said at the end "you're very succinct aren't you" and she made it sound like a good thing, but it obviously wasn't. Got the rejection email this afternoon Sad

    On the plus side, if I'd passed the interview then I'd have had to go for a selection day group interview thing in Nottingham next week... when I'm on holiday in Brighton... and it would have been a nightmare journey and expensive and I'd have been well annoyed to do that and THEN get rejected!

    It's not nice to be turned down... but at least I already have a permanent job so I'm not losing anything really. Still. In need of commiserations please!

    Sorry you didn't get accepted. At least now you can enjoy your holiday without interruptions! Can you apply next year and try and defer for a year? Or apply in the year you'd want to start?

    I can apply next year, but I'll (hopefully) have given birth recently, so may not be in the best frame of mind. The year after I can't apply, as you need to apply within 2 years of graduating Sad

    To be honest it's a pilot scheme... so maybe best if I wasn't one of the guinea pigs, and there are other, more traditional ways to progress in this career too Smile

    It wasn't meant to be.

    When you have your baby your whole world will shift on its axis (regardless of what you say now!) and it might well not be what you want to do anyway. Put this one down to fate knowing best!

    Save the vibes!!

    Haha, love the idea of saving the vibes! Big Smile

    Sorry you didn't get through Saisi but it does sound like it wasn't meant to be.
