Man, what a let down today. I got an inside scoop that Mesa/Boogie was hiring for the West Coast Sales Manager position, and I got my resume in as quickly as I could. My buddies Trent and Steve at Boogie puts in a good word for me, and the waiting begins. Two weeks go by, and no phone call. Bummer. So I figure the position is filled. And then I get a call today. Woohoo!! I'm talking to the guy for about 10 minutes, and it seems to be going great. I am getting excited, and a bit nervous. Adrenaline pumping. And then he drops the bomb on me: the position has already been filled. Ouch. We continued to talk for about 20 minutes, and he says he is really impressed with my resume, and wants to keep me in mind for the future. He talked to my buddies and also the VP about it, and they had all really good things to say he says. Hmmm... seems everything was in my favor, so I guess there was some pretty stiff competition. All in all it was a pretty positive conversation, but I still don't have a job with Boogie. Rats. All that adrenaline for nothing. Hold me.
