However...
...when they asked me if I had anything to add regarding my resume/work history before they call my references, I told them that the reason that I left my first job was due to a lack of support/resources for new grads.
I feel like shooting myself in the foot after saying that, but what's been said has been said and I can't take it back. Realistically, do you guys think I just kissed a great opportunity good bye?
P.S: the only reason I told them that is because I know that when they call up the manager I put for reference for that job will tell them that things didn't work out because the site wasn't prepared with the staff and resources to train a new grad. At the time, I thought that being honest is the best policy, but I'm not so sure anymore.
