No one is giving me a position outright... and the position is available, they aren't creating it for me. HR from my division won't let speak to HR Corporate, to interview! They are denying me the chance to interview for no reason at all. Actually the reason the HR Director mentioned is nonsense and has been agreed upon that it is so by my bosses' boss (who has no problem allowing me interview, btw). It's one thing to interview and not get the job, its another thing altogether to not be allowed to interview at all.
