    Back to square one.
    That is so unprofessional of him, maybe you are better off not working there.

    Blissfully close *ahhhh*
    Oh no!! How RUDE that he kept leaving the room during your interview! I agree with tiggerguy-that is *extremely* UNprofessional! And that they didn't even look at your portfolio!! I know exactly how that feels-completely UNFAIR. I had an interview/test once, to be teaching some college test prep classes. Well, I didn't score THAT much lower than what they were looking for...and I actually could have re-taken the test if I wanted... but when I waited for a few days for them to let me know what they thought of my score, etc, and found out that they didn't even READ my essay that I had written (as part of the test) I was totally miffed. The girl said that the director felt like since I didn't get as high as they wanted in any of the areas (and honestly, it was SO CLOSE, that probably had I re-taken, I would have hit the mark), that "they didn't feel it necessary to go forward with the essay". Felt like a HUGE waste of my time, and like it was unfair- like they didn't even completely look at my 'application', kwim? Especially considering that the Writing score was a combined total of essay + questions, so actually the Writing score looks really bad w/o essay points, and yet they didn't even want to look at my essay (and since I was so close to the mark, likely my essay would have helped me hit the mark.)

    For about 3 seconds I thought about arguing it, then something inside me (God?) told me not to even bother, that I don't really WANT to work for people who are unfair like this, that I don't want to appear to be BEGGING them for a job, insisting they look at my essay or something.

    Funny thing is....THE SAME DAY I was sorting through the Orlando Sentinel (newspaper) and noticed that THAT location was looking for a new director. When I discovered that, I thought, "maybe that's why she really could give a flying hoot about me, SHE'S about to be leaving, evidently"

    Things happen for a reason hon, even when we don't see that reason NOW. This job looked so great to *you*... but remember God can see into the future, unlike us, and He knows why this isn't a good job for you. You will likely find out later why this would have been a bad move. *hugs*
