I do not understand it.  Well I guess I do, but I don’t like it… being stood up.  About 10% of my phone interviews stand me up.  These are people that picked the day and time for the interview.  They also received an email confirming the day and time and finally, I email them again the day before or the morning of the interview.  Oy vey!

I feel like I am back in high school and people are breaking up with me by not calling me back.  Oh, wait… that was me.  Sorry about that!  But now we are supposed to be adults.  This is business.  Just tell me you are no longer interested, I can handle it!

What I do not like is being stood up.  Would you like it?  I think not.  So, if you decide you are no longer interested just tell the company.  What if you took another job?  Tell them!  You never know how things will work out in the future.

Man up and put your big girl panties on!


Dating is pressure and tension.  What is a date, really, but a job interview that lasts all night?
