I know exactly what you are going thru. Before I lost my job the end of July I had interviewed 2x for this co. I really wanted a job there. I thought I had a good chance but I, too got the no thank you letter. I applied again I think back in October at their job fair. I have not heard a thing. I called and was told they were hiring for open positions in Jan. and Feb. I do not know if I should believe that. Then the end of Sept. some guy called me as he got my resume from the internet. I talked to him but had no interest in the job. I agreed to go and interview. They were hiring 8 people. Once I got to the interview and asked some questions, it was not what I thought it was and I decided I really wanted the job. I even sent a thank you note...actually to both places. Again, another no thank you. 2 weeks ago I started a long term temp. job. I really like it there. It is only temp. but I emailed the temp agency and said I would really love to stay on there. They said they would look into it and see what they can do for me. So, we shall see. This is a very hard time of the year to be unemployeed also.
Shynsassy, I do not know where you live, but I was wondering how your unemployment works and how you can get an extension.
