A nice sentiment, but it's a pretty safe bet that these limited-release shoes will sell out instantly and hit eBay at crazy, unobtainable-to-most-people prices. He makes it sound like he's single-handedly democratized high fashion or something.

C'mon now I said boat not inner tube/raft

Although I will say my people are some of the most inventive (communism is a bitch)

My Poeme Bohemien pants came in and they're really nice and interesting (raw hem, lined to the leg opening in linen, textured) but there's slightly too much room in the crotch (no jokes pls). Any way to fix this?

hey guys sorry to post about job searches here but i could use talking to someone right about now.

i have been on the job hunt.  i recently met someone at a networking event who seemed really nice, the guy came off as really friendly and he offered to submit my resume at his company which does financial technology, the field i wanna work in.

he does the initial phone screening for the company so because of the conflict on interest, another guy from another office did the phone screen.  i passed the phone screen, they brought me in for round 1 in-person interview which was a 1-hour logic test and a 1-hour skills/knowledge test, and then a 1-hour traditional interview with the NYC manager.  then they brought me in a week later for a 2-hour interview with the 2 North America managers, who are also based in the NYC office.  they then brought me in last tuesday for the final interview  by video conference with the COO in london.

the guys in the NYC office where i'd work came across as really nice.  even wished me luck in person before the videoconference at the final interview!  i really thought i had the job and that the COO interview was just a formality.

today 48 hours later, i got an e-mail saying they wouldn't proceed further. i feel like shit. i would have really liked this job, i would have loved the people i would work with.

i'm now trying to figure out what went wrong.

is 48 hours enough time to do a background check, and to screen my resume to make sure it's legit?  because the company i worked at before went under, and if they called for a reference, they would have gotten the HR of the new takeover company who don't know me.  also I was laid off just before the company went bust, but i didn't mention at the interview i was laid off.

 

also, regardless of the outcome i feel like I owe the guy who submitted my resume a huge thank you.  he was really nice and supportive whereas all other companies ive interviewed at have been assholes.  what can i do to show my appreciation?

They found someone else.  Send them a thank you note and keep looking

@kingjulien,

i was told they were not looking at anyone else at the moment for the NYC office.  i believe them.  the guy who submitted my resume knows, he does the phone screening.  i met him socially  at an alumni networking event so he's become a friend, he won't lie about that to me.

 

also, is 48 hours enough for a background check or to check my resume for veracity?  because i thought i would get the offer first and then have to consent for resume check, and that at that time i'd tell them about the layoff before the bankruptcy, where they can get a hold of my old manager if they wanted a reference, etc.  obiviously my old manager is not there anymore, he is also laid off.

Pretty sure a background check can take up to a week, though I may be mistaken.
post #93390 of 109053

@thewho13 thanks man.  so it prolly means they didn't independently check my resume and find out my old company "dont know who i am when they phone them up"

 

which means i blew the final interview with the COO in london.  shit.  he was a british guy with a british accent and i had trouble understanding him. im amazed though he has veto power like that after i was approved by the NYC office manager (the hiring manager for this role), and the two North America managers!
