so sweet!

Just wanted to thank the ladies at a certain bookstore -- I was one of the many many applicants you interviewed this week for the full time position, and it was great to sit down with you & chat about books. While I was really disappointed to get that phone call this morning and not get hired, you were really sweet about it on the phone, and somehow not getting hired still felt encouraging. Promoting internally makes total sense, and your compliments made me feel okay about still being unemployed (like so many other young people in this city)...

I don't feel rejected or embittered at all (which I usually do when I don't get hired someplace I was all optimistic about)-- I wish all interviewers were like you! I'll continue to shop in your store, no awkwardness. But seriously though, if things don't work out... you have my resume. And the memories. <3
