Yes.. my current job is pretty much 75% travel. He was doing interviews on Friday. I had to decline due to a personal trip that we had booked and planned for 3 months ago. ( nope, not cancelling our trip) Yes, I told him that it was a personal trip. He said that if they did not already fill the position perhaps we could meet another time. Fair enough. (Job is at a car dealer....). I don’t understand why we could not have briefly spent time on the phone. And I won’t lose sleep over a lost interview opp.

The truth is -- when it comes to hiring -- most HR people, bosses, interviewers are just putting pegs in holes.
They're not thinking outside the box, and they're certainly not thinking of applicants as true individuals whose time is just as valuable as theirs.

Good eggs, competent people who really care and are thoughtful of others time are rare to find -- period.
People like that in hiring or management positions are even rarer.

"Applicants" are not the HR people's, bosses', interviewers' concern. And most of them don't go the extra mile or put any extra thinking into the process they've been handed.

He had viewed my online resume 3 times....this is the second attempt to meet. The job attracted over 20 applicants. I was not scheduled for the first round of interviews because of my travel schedule..hence, my request for a phone interview...of only for a “screening” type phone interview. But, as the previous posts suggest, my innocent request did not fly.
