Humble pie-d

Further to your application for the position of ***, I am writing to advise that you have not been selected for interview on this occasion.

We have received other applications from candidates whose skills and experience more closely matched the role criteria. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the interest you have shown in this role and we hope our decision will not deter you from applying for any other suitable vacancies in the future.

Kind regards,

This was the email I received sometime on Friday, quite frankly out of the blue. Thanks to the fantastic run I had been on, I had become slightly too big for my own boots, turning down job offers time and time again and even going as far as thinking I had the current job I was chasing nailed after a screening interview I thought I’d aced. The hiring agent who facilitated the interview emailed to say they were keen to have a face to face in town, and I’d begun to prepare for it until the email, hence my surprise…

I suppose every bloke needs something to bring him down a notch or two once in a while and keep him grounded. I shall eat my chunk of humble pie and go back to the drawing board…

I needed reminding…

A bloke can do no worse than believe his own hype.
