Ok so I had completed 3 interviews with one company (1 phone, 2 panel) and felt as if they were very successful. I was then selected to have them do a full background check which I was told was the next step after a successful interview....now here's the funny part. It took about a week for them to get together all the documentation and contact all my refrences (which I am confident were awesome) then they called me out of the blue and all they said was "are you still interested and available for the position?" I replied "yes, I want it very much, am very interested yada yada" THEN they proceed to say "we are down to the last picks and will contact you either way in the next 1-2 weeks"
Ummmm...I don't know how to feel about that....why call me and ask then not offer the position? Is this a soft let down? If so...why not just the standard rejection letter? Maybe I am reading into this too much but it's been 3 days since that phone call and I have not heard anything. I mean...why ask me if I am still interested and available to start the job??? but they are not prepared to offer it after a question like that.
I guess I am just bugging. This is my dream job.
