Not gonna be a spin doctor

So, I didn't get the job . . .

But I'm okay with that. I really wanted the job, but I realize that it may not be the best place to work if (a) they don't want to hire someone who's more than qualified and (b) they mail letters to those who weren't chosen for the position. Is it just me or does that seem extremely cold? I like to get a phone call from the person who interviewed me so I can ask them how I can improve, what I should have done differently, and all that stuff. Now I'm wondering who they hired . . .

It's probably for the better. I know I should be in journalism and not in PR, but goddammit there aren't any decent newspaper jobs, especially in Atlantic Canada (which is where I'd like to be). So, back I go, to the job boards, in search of that ever-elusive job writing for that ever-elusive newspaper.


  1. Oh dear.

    This is bad news indeed, but the good news is you'll have some shiny knitting needles in your posession in a couple of days!

    They have been placed in the mail.

  2. Thanks for putting those needles in the mail. I can't wait to get cracking on those slippers.

    And I'm okay with the rejection I suffered today. At least I still have a kickass job at the art gallery, albeit a part-time job.

  3. I'm sorry that you didn't get the job, Ingrid. But it's nice that you're OK with it, too. Happy hunting! (Speaking of hunting, there's a sign outside a place on Argyle that says 'Fresh snared rabbits 9$ a pair'... hungry?)

  4. Yeah, I'm not a big bunny-eater. But I want to know why they're sold in pairs? They're dead, so it's not like they're sold for the purpose of copulation. Is there something I don't know -- Can you not just cook one? So many questions ...
