Well, to the surprise and shock of no one, I did not get the photographer job I interviewed for. They decided to go with someone who had more action photography experience, which I can’t really fault them for, since I have none. What I find annoying is that I had to chase them to find out I didn’t get the job. From what I understood, they had all of three applicants. How hard is it to drop an e-mail to the other two saying, “So sorry, but we decided to go with someone else. Thanks for your interest.”? This happens in every job I’ve interviewed for. You go to the interview and they say something like “We’ll make our decision by the end of the week. Either way, you’ll have an answer by then”. The end of the week comes and, if you’re not the applicant they go with, you hear nothing. Really, that’d be fine if they’d just said “If you don’t hear from us by the end of the week, you didn’t get the job.”, but no, they leave you twisting. You think maybe there was a delay, so they won’t decide until Monday. You have to decide how much time to give them before you contact them and ask. I friggin‘ hate that. Just tell me! I can take rejection. The gods know I’m certainly used to it by now. It’s the uncertainty that gets to me, having hope and cynicism fighting a little war in my brain for a couple of days.

Meh. Ah well, back to the want ads.
