The answer's no

It would seem they do take a perverse pleasure in getting people's hopes up by leaving them messages asking to call back. Based on the assessment report, the selection committee was of the opinion that there were too many 'points of attention' and they've decided not to hire me.

Oh, sorry love. I know this one was important to you.

End of the day, you gave it your best shot, pet, and you should be proud of having got this far. Their loss. Put all the experience you've gained doing this to good use and go get that absolutely perfect job that's waiting round the corner.

((hugs))

You know what? I am. A year ago, this kind of rejection would have been devastating to me; but I've since regained my confidence and self-esteem, and going through this whole harrowing process has actually helped me in that. I'm only sad that I don't get to be that welcome dinner guest at any table, the international woman of mystery, but the blow is to my vanity, not my self-esteem.

Still, now begins the odious task of finding positions to apply for again...

Well, you're already that, so where's the loss?

And good for you and for your self-esteem. Your vanity will get over it. Maybe some new shoes? ;)

Funny you should mention that! I've already got my eye on a few shops that need careful investigation next time I'm in London (Office, Poste Mistress -- and I've even seen a pair I like at TopshopOnline!).
