Sublimly Ridiculous

For the LOVE of Margaret!!!

That’s a favorite expletive at my house and it expresses extreme frustration…

Bear with me… IF you were pursued about a “promotion” in your current job and after careful consideration express an interest and inclination to move forward with the opportunity, you would be available to proceed with the requisite interview process. Right?

But what if the EMPLOYER flakes out on not one but TWO scheduled interviews…

Losing my freaking mind… So frustrated. Perhaps there’s a really good reason. I hope so. Because this level of crazy at a national leadership level makes me nuts.

Just sayin’…

  • Play it backwards. Don’t let them know you’re mad or frustrated. Tell them you’re ready to to interview them about the promotion whenever they are. Yes, you read that right. Act like you are doing them a favor, not the other way around.

  • That’s excellent advice from Difster.

    I’ve used that very method myself in the past to great effect.
