Job Hunting Zen Thought of the Week – July 10, 2015

Here is your Job Hunting Zen Thought of the Week!

You really wanted the job, but you didn't get it.

The company decided to pursue another individual for the job. You were told this occurred because they felt the other person was a better "cultural fit."

What they didn't tell you was that the previous three people in the position failed in the role. The critical stakeholders essential to this role's success conspired to have all previous people in the position removed.

Sometimes failing to get the job can be considered a small victory.
