scolly-I have been in the same position a few times, knowing I was the perfect candidate and fit for a particular job description, only to be disappointed by not even being interviewed. My only consolation was that it was their loss, and if they weren't bright enough to even talk to me I probably didn't really want to work there anyway. I still was very disappointed though. I also suspect that age discrimination or an inside candidate were factors. So I'm still self-employed and plan to remain so.I don't think there was anything improper at all about your note and token gift certificate. It differentiated you from the rest, which makes you sound like the type of person I'd want working for me. You had nothing to loose at that point and were being totally upfront. If Dr. X and her system can't handle that, it's their problem, and again, maybe you don't really want to work there even if the job description is a perfect fit; there can be a huge difference between a job description and an actual job and the work environment by the way! (I've had plenty of experience in that dept. too)Good Luck!leindert
