I applied at this company and last Friday they verified my references. And then 4 days later hiring manager sets up a phone conversation letting me know they still have other finalist they are interviewing and will let me know when t they make a decision. I really wanted this job and now idk if I’ll even get it. But my question, why would she verify my references and not offer me the job!is that normal ? This never happened to me before 😞

You still waiting?

So hiring manager was like, we have couple more candidates to do final interviews n then they will decide.

When I got my current job, I was told that they did reference check for 2 finalists. So it is not uncommon. Hope you get this job. Good luck.

What position is it? And what type of company is it?

I’ve seen the same job description from three different small business firms (exact same job description language).

Fellow Fishes -

How did you all deal with failure in your career. I was ambitious and smart. I was in IBM and considered to be one of the best of my class. I was fired and haven’t really found my way.

I don’t know what to do anymore. 3 years after the fact, I am still at an entry level position. I hate myself for letting things get this bad but I don’t know how to get out of this perpetual cycle. I tried working my ass off but have not been able to shake off that unfortunate past.
