I never been a fan of receiving rejections letter because it's nothing but a double talking letter and I can just come to the conclusion from hearing no contact at all. It just sucks that this letter arrives the day before my birthday but I;m not going to let it get me down I will keep moving forward. I had already to suspend job search on my birthday tomorrow and enjoy my day. I already knew I didn't get the job when I asked what is the next step in the hiring process and the guy answered

"Well we will be interviewing more people next week"


Well I guess it's better I got it the day before my birthday instead of the day of my birthday. Keeping my spirits up

I had no planned on checking my business email until Monday once 5pm came today and that email came at 5:09pm. If I had gotten it on Monday i don't think it would have bothered me that much. But I knew from the way both interviewers were SILENT as i left the room was a sign that I wasn't going to be selected.

That was really a arkward feeling to leave a room and it was so quiet like they were waiting for me to leave so they can talk about me. June is almost over

I am of the mindset that even though you felt it at least they let you know not to keep hoping. I've gone on interviews that I thought were promising never to hear anything again. After a month or two you start to figure that's it!

Happy Birthday TVSG; enjoy your day!

Well I knew the position started on July 2nd so I would have known I didn't get the job if it got to be June 29th. The letter came through email. Thanks for the Birthday wishes
