Just in case anybody out there was keeping score ... I got "thanks, but no thanks" e-mails from BOTH of those interviews I had a couple of weeks back ... I didn't even make it to being a "finalist" on the one that I thought was "finally THE job".
Sucks to be me.
Nothing quite like hitting the new year in a fresh hole ... after 32 months of looking for work, I can't even feel I'm "back to square one".
