I’m being trialled for a job this week, in IT. I’ll be helping with programming, databases and watching the servers. I just don’t know what day I’ll be starting nor do I know yet how many days a week it will be.

At least it will be in civilisation, i.e. in the middle of the city. So there will be coffee shops and other food places within walking distance.

Bummer, did they give a reason for the sudden refusal?

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you’re a mile away and you have their shoes.

When life hands you lemons make apple juice. Then laugh while life tries to figure out how you did it.

Aww.. sorry to hear that.

Make sure that you let them know ‘if anything DOES open up…’

Most firms or employers don’t give a reason for firing, OR just not giving you a position you applied to, that I can understand (even though a few will send a letter of rejection at least).  What I’m NOT ‘getting’ here is that it sounded like they had already given you the position….then changed their mind?  How did they contact you with their change of heart?  Was this via letter, telephone or you went in to start the position and they sent you home?  Were you ever given the chance to ask ‘why?’?
