This morning I interviewed with a nice company for a technical writer slot. The interview felt an awful lot like a "going through the motions" sort of thing and I'm pretty sure my answers weren't entirely compelling either. About an hour afterward, the recruiter calls to inform me that an offer was made to another candidate with more recent training manual experience. Le sigh.
There are 12 more calendar days left on this project so I remain hopeful something will turn up before then.
