It isn't anyone you'd recognize; his name was Dave and he was a Vietnam Vet who also happened to be homeless. Just listening to his stories was amazing. He had a son that he hadn't seen in 20 years, and a brother who lived in another state but he had no way of contacting them; he was just forgotten and sleeping in bus terminals or behind the grocery store. He really deserved better. I hope his life has turned around, I really do.

I interviewed for a job a month ago. A few weeks after the interview, I was told my feedback was good, but the company was evaluating all positions at the company at this time. Today, I saw the job is no longer posted, but my application is still "active" in the workday system. Anyone have any idea what this would mean? I don't want to continuously bother the recruiter.
