A painful mistake or just bad luck
Hello fellow monkeys,
A story for you all.
I work for a satellite HQ office (instead of the global HQ) for a multinational F500.
I recently interviewed for a position that I was really interested and eager in getting.
So the timeline was like this,
Send thank you note afterwards
Hiring manager responds.
Send followup on Friday (after being told I'd hear back within the week).
Send followup on Monday
Manager sends a message along the lines saying that such frequent follow up will typically hurt my chances, and to not take being internal for granted.
I respond hoping to remedy the situation, but at the time I didn't feel I had any major reason to apologize.
I probably didn't get the position, even though they said they'd keep me posted. I'll probably always think of this scenario in future occasions
What would you guys have done?
