After what has basically been a quiet month on the employment front, I got two calls yesterday for interview this week.
If I was Charlie Sheen, I'd say I was bi-winning right there.
I was quite happy yesterday. One is a company that I know treats their employees quite well, and the other one was for a position my experience is almost a perfect fit for. This is fine and dandy.
But I found something kind of strange. The second company that called me left a message on my phone at 2:26 in the afternoon yesterday. I got it and replied shortly after 3pm to set up the (phone) interview for today. When I checked my e-mail this morning, there was a message from the company's senior recruiter sent at 2:25 yesterday (how did I miss that?) saying that while my skills were impressive they would be interviewing other candidates who more closely match their needs.
I called the company to ask for clarification as to whether or not I did in fact have an interview this afternoon. Turns out I do, they were responding to two different job positions! *facepalm* Why one person called from Edmonton, Alberta and one e-mailed from Chesterfield, Missouri, I don't know. One would think centralized HR would be handy in the hiring department. Daisy, do you know why it's done this way?
Anyway, I have an interview to prep for. Hopefully I didn't make too much of a fool of myself there :s
