I was too late. They are offering that professional position to someone today. I’ll still submit my materials, however, it’s only for the slightest chance that the position goes into search again.
I feel stuck, but then again, I knew it was a long shot. I was excited at the prospect of making use of my degree and my background.
Anyway, I’m tired and so disappointed that I feel like a small child, lip pouting out, with the dropped ice-cream on the ground.
My energy for finishing up my application packet is obviously flagging and bottoming out now, but I’ll still forward it on. You never know what might happen. I keep smacking myself in the head for not seeing the job posting back in June.
