Part-time actress

Recently, after interviewing for a position in my industry, I received an e-mail message from the owner of the agency telling me they were going with another candidate. Even though I was their number one pick, they passed on me.

So, I do what every other person does: secretly wish them failure on their future endeavours.

Not long after the interview, I see a posting for an intern at the same agency. They were going to have an intern from a local college work with them for several months to get experience. But, I guess that intern – wisely – dropped out because they knew what they were in for.

With the posting is a name; the name of the person who was hired.

After doing a bit of searching, I find that this person doesn’t have a background in my industry. No qualifications. No certification. No degree. In fact, their most recent accomplishments entail being an entertainer. To cut to the quick, she’s an actress.

They hired a fucking actress over me.

She must’ve been damn good in her interview to have influenced the agency’s owner. Oscar caliber. Sadly, I guess I’m only Emmy material... or Golden Globe, which is even more pathetic.

Christopher has a point, but - well, you DID give up some sex, right? I mean, in my experience that's a normal part of an interview... isn't it?

I would still put the evil eye on them. Or just sit back and wait for karma to kick in. Bastards.

Ooh, I just found out the actress who 'took the job' (from me) is leaving.

Maybe she's not that good, after all.

So the actress is leaving eh?

Now the question is, do you swallow your pride and re-apply for the damn job, or do you go to that office and gloat that they screwed up?

Hmmmmm ....

I think you should do both. Go to the office and gloat for a time, make em sweat a bit, and then offer to help them out of a bind!
