The new job fell through? :(
On the one hand, I received an email today saying that they would like to extend me an offer.
On the other hand, four people called and/or emailed me from the company asking me if I’d done the online Excel test yet, and no, I hadn’t. So I assured them all I was going to do it after work today. Lo and behold, the test had expired because it had been seven days since they sent it to me. So I had to call and leave them all messages at 7pm apologizing profusely and asking could they please send it to me again and I promise I’ll take it I PROMISE I WILL.
Here’s what happened. They sent it to me last Monday. It was from a third party provider and the email didn’t include the company’s name at all, so I thought it was spam and deleted it. Then on Tuesday, the 3rd, I received an email and phone message saying that they were sending me the test. So I thought the seven days started from Tuesday. I didn’t realize until today when I was looking for the email that they’d actually sent it to me last Monday - Tuesday was just the day they told me about it. So I had my seven days wrong.
So I fucked it up.
