Ugh, I just got a knock back for a position I applied for and really, really wanted. I'm qualified for it, I could do it easily, the hours and location would have suited me perfectly, and I have done this sort of work in the past. I didn't even score an interview.

I hate this process. Time is running out and I don't seem to be getting anywhere, plus I'm finding it harder than usual to deal with the knock backs. The recruiter I saw isn't returning my calls. The only word for today is ugh.

I think the only option in these situations is to suck it up and forge ahead. You shall find something.

definitely and 'ugh'
i am sad to hear of it.

Sorry to hear it didn't work out for you. I agree with Mel: you shall find something!

Bob! Oh, Bob! Do I have any openings this man may fit?

Oh dear. Sorry to hear it - looks like I'm in a similar place. But the only consolation is that if they didn't want to work with you, then you probably didn't want to work with them. Maybe something much better is just around the corner.

Sheesh, that sucks. Never any easier, no matter what.
I've been there myself.

I'm wishing you luck.

Recruitment agents, suck!

If you don't get the job, they're not interested...if you do get an interview they're your best friend. If you get the job, then commission earned and they will do just about anything for you.

(recruitment agents out there that don't do this, I'm sorry for generalising but 12 years dealing with you has kinda jaded me;-))

TOA - something will come along that you fit into and it will just feel right. Good Luck!
