I lost my job (software develeopment) last September. I’ve had a few interviews but no offers as of yet. On July 9 I had a phone interview for the big software company in the area. Later that day the HR guy said “Good news! they really like you and want an in-person interview” which I had on July 12th. I’ve wanted to work for this company ever sice I was let go, but they had been on a hiring freeze because the company was recently bought by a bigger company
I heard nothing and e-mailed the HR person on July 19th. Turns out he was on vacation.
On July 25th he replied that he had not heard anything about the position and needed to talk to the hiring managers.
As of this morning (the 27th) the job is no longer posted on thier website. Since they did not offer it to me, I presume someone else has accepted it.
(there is some hope, but if they wanted me I figure I would have heard something sooner)
Last time I was unemployed I had 3 inverviews and 2 offers (including one from the local company that got bought) and was only out of a job for 6 weeks.
Financially I’m doing OK, but I really don’t want to leave the area and now I’m thinking I will have to.
