Just heard back that I didn't get the job. Current job is so stressful and I was excited for the newjob. Also, feels rude that the junior recuiter told me instead of the hiring manager. I hadn't been looking when the recruiter called, but still hurts to get rejected. Trying to keep my chin up. I can make it through the downturn and do a proper job hunt when the time is right. In the meantime, any tips on performing when your heart isn't on it?

Were you in finals rounds i.e. them deciding between you and max 1-2 other candidates? Trying to understand what's so insulting about a junior recruiter letting you know

Yes, I had done four rounds. It was between me and two others. I have friends at the company. Met nine different people from the team. This guy was basically the scheduler at the agency.

My motivator to leave my last job was just applying for jobs and doing what was expected in my job but not doing the above at beyond. Something good will come along (from someone who left the previous job and is now happier in a new role)
