So this morning, I did a little more calendar stalking and stumbled upon a lunch the hiring manager set up for the whole creative buying team . . . officially welcoming two girls who were working under contract on their team. They have now been hired on.

I received the official word that I did not receive the job at about 2:30 or so. The Hr rep was appalled to find out that I interviewed a month ago, and said there were too many delays, even though this was the hiring managers first attempt at hiring.

So the low down is that at here was a Sr. Specialist position open and an Assoc Specialist position. They interviewed a Sr. Print buyer for the Sr position, who then backtracked after the interview and did informationals, because she wanted confirmation of the responsibilities of the position. They offered her the position, but waited on the assoc specialist until her decision. She turned the job down, so they didn’t feel comfortable bringing in an assoc specialist with someone with little to no more experience.

So just as I read, they are hiring on two of the girls who have been in contracted positions on the team.

They wanted a high and low, but they ended up with two mediums.

Soo . . . as I'm digesting this, I go to call Tony. I'd already forewarned him of the lunch I found, so we were pretty prepared for this info. I called, and I called, and I called once more, but no husband. About a 30 an hour after I found out, he finally called me back.

Me (annoyed): Hi.
Tony (breathless): Hi! How are you?!
Me (even more annoyed): Well, I've been trying to call you to tell you I officially didn't get the job.
Tony: Oh, okay.
Me (not even on the level of annoyed any more, but past): Really?
Tony: Well I just got done with an important good conversation.
Me (interest slightly piqued): Okay, with who?
Tony: Brady (Tony's boss).
Me: Okay, and?
Tony: He wants you to interview. Tomorrow, if you can.


Tony's company wants to interview me for their marketing/new business/graphic design position!

I've never seen a closed door produce an open window faster.
