They gave me a call this morning to ask where I was (I was scheduled to take an exam at their HQ). I told them I had emailed them last night.
I would not be considering a job there.
The lady asked… “REALLY?”
I told her I might in the future, just not now.
They closed my application and told me I had to apply the long and hard way “in the future”.
This was a tough call for me to make, but I’m happy now that the door is more or less closed, I can focus on what I set out to do in the first place, whatever that is.
In fact, I have much more pressure to succeed with my chosen route, and I’ll treat that as a positive thing =)
