So, I have an interview this afternoon. It's for a job that sounds good: challenging, interesting, with lots of variety and new things for me to learn, and decent compensation, with benefits. And I sound like a good fit for the position.
The woman just called and left me a message telling me she'd forgotten to tell me how important it is for the person in this position to have a car - for running all over town, delivering blueprints, and meeting with people who bid on jobs, etc.
Wow. Nice timing: I've already asked for the time off to come see you, borrowed a vehicle to get there, dressed for it, and gotten ahead of my work so it won't be a problem.
My cubemate said it best: "WHY wasn't this in the ad?"
Good question; wish I had a good answer. The person interviewing me did say to come anyway, because she wants to meet me - and she will talk with her husband about it (he's the boss of the firm).
I'm still going, but I have a sneaking suspicion I'm about to be disappointed.
Am going to try and be positive, and look at it as a learning experience.
