Hey all, I need help.
I had a phone interview today and it went well, but I am overqualified and they needed someone for a shift I can't work. The pay was also like 25% than what I make now.
Anyway she was super nice and said basically, like honestly - you would be better suited for this other position we have...unfortunately, they're not hiring for it now (it's a big company and they staff like say 5 of that particular position, kwim?) they could be and she'd like to keep my resume on file. The woman said - "WBN, you'd be so much better for that!" I didn't think she was just being nice, because really - why would she need to be? She could say - thanks but no thanks...I didn't get the interview because I knew someone, so she didn't owe me anything if that makes sense)
So I'd like to thank her - but how do you phrase that? Like - thanks for speaking with me about job X and I'm sorry it didn't work out (?!) but I really appreciate you keeping my information on hand in case job Y opens up?
I have to say - I was glad it was 'them' and not me this time! LOL! Usually I'm not enough for a job, this time I was too much. Ha ha!
Thanks in advance!
