Nein! Confusion, and potential!
1. I received this email as a response to one of my recent applications, short, sweet and to the point:
Thank you so much for your interest in working with us*. At this time we are not considering you for the position(s) you applied for.
Best of luck in your job search."
*I've replaced us with the name.
2. I also received, what I consider to be a rather confusing email today. One of the jobs/locations I applied to, that had already responded with a maybe - as in, they got my material and would let me know if I was going to get an interview or not - has sent me an email today re:internships. However, none of the positions I applied for at this particular location were listed as internships. I'll have to check into it. Hmmmm...
3. I've also had a promising response for a Production Manager Position I applied too, to set up a meeting to chat. Yay! :o)
Oh, and I also had a meeting today about a show I'm directing over the summer with the Good Cause Club in a local town.
Feels like a productive day, even considering the fact that I spent the morning finishing my book (Traveling with Pommegrantes) and then went over to a friends house for lunch/hang out time, and then had coffee and a chat with another friend who's also working on the Good Cause Club show. Nice day!
