Never lie!

You ARE in a stuck situation and apparently have no other options...why is that? Perhaps your Director see's what others do not. Perhaps they can see why you have no other interviews.

It appears that they are interviewing others because you aren't what they want for whatever reason.

If people were asking me if I have other interviews I would say: Should I?

Its not "they". Its my site director who is unsure. Everyone else is pressuring him to hire me. Everyone else that has worked with me and knows me better. I think its personal with him. We haven't really connected and I would be reporting to him.

REREAD my statement.... THEY referred to the Director....maybe this lack of understanding things is why they(the director) doesn't want you?
Perhaps they(the director) can see that you need simple things explained in detail and they(the director) would prefer someone that's a bit brighter and a go getter.

Maybe this is why you have no other offers.


Maybe you should take the questions of having another interview as a hint....maybe they're not asking. Maybe they're suggesting.

Sounds like they're telling you to look and move on and there is no real future there. The interview is a courtesy.

Do you have a response to my actual question? Your wasting thread space.

Being liked by coworkers is nowhere near as important as being seen as competent to the boss!

I've worked with quite a few affable people whom just did crappy work and we all suffered to make up for their poor work habits. Liked or not, they had to go.

There's your answer. If "they" talk him into hiring you, is this really going to change?

My position won't be available as the temp position will be replaced by a perm position. That's why I'm not too concerned about it "backfiring." I have about a year of experience. The perm position normally requires 2-3 years at least, which is why my site director is hesitant. The people they will be interviewing have that much experience.
