Cutting the Cord on the Cable Guys

The local lead I had for a manufacturer of cable TV network compliance instruments has been crossed off as dead.

I made contact with the recruiter who introduced me to them, and he said that their official line was that they had found someone who had better qualifications than I, but that they hadn't ruled me completely out yet.

His interpretation of this statement was that they were dragging their feet on the decision, and even if they were to make an offer, it would probably be a lot less than what I was hoping for. He suggested that I give up on it, but he promised he would continue looking for other possible opportunities for me.

The countdown to the second interview with Do-No-Evil is a little more than one week and a day. It's pretty much all I have left now. After the interviewing hell that first week of September, I throttled back on job hunting so that I could concentrate on the work leading up to my conference this coming week.

The odds are against me on Do-No-Evil, given my success rate with the upper stratospheres of interviewing experiences. Maybe the job boards will have cycled themselves through, and new opportunities will arise. I don't know.

Quite frankly, I'm not sure where I go after this. I don't think I'm going to make it through by self validation alone. Maybe it is time to get evaluated for medication.
