Thanks Nick, and thanks to all who made me feel a lot better about this rejection. It still stings, because despite their off-putting hiring practices in this case, I really wanted that job! And I wish I could please everybody, all the time, but I'm learning that I probably can't.Perhaps I just need to become better at handling rejection in business. I'm very good at handling rejection in my personal life after having accumulated a lot of experience there. :-)But maybe I wouldn't have fit in with the company after all… Ah well.Even though I got rejected here, I don't feel it was because I'm lacking ability. It's like getting rejected on a first date, not because I'd make a bad partner, but just because I didn't fit my date's “script” for how a person is supposed to act on a first date.I learned from the experience, and I think it will actually boost my confidence that I can win the job in most circumstances.ErdrickP.S. My favorite quote from the “Why We Hate HR” article is, ”Outsourcing the administrative minutiae, after all, would allow human-resources professionals to focus on more important stuff that's central to the business. You know, being strategic partners.”You'll have to read the article to get why that's so funny.
