Friday, a potential employer sent me an email alerting me that she had awarded me a job at 3:00PM. Now, some days, I keep my email open all day long, but I am running short on my online allotment (actually I am way over right now, but who is counting?).
I got on my account at 4:45 PM, only to see her email announcement, see that she had in fact awarded me the job, and then see that she had rescinded that award. (Rescinded is my spelling word of the week since she did this to me.)
What provokes someone to award a job and then cancel it an hour and forty five minutes later? I don't know. Although there is a place for the employer to leave a message, she chose not to tell me why she made her rather flighty decision.
However, in some aspects I am relieved. I really do not work for someone who can't decide what she wants...
