I have on internal positions. In part because that company required feedback be provided.

Oh well, time to keep applying to places.


I applied for a job like a year and a half ago for a small bank looking for someone to implement a very specific new regulation for their org. I had led a team that implemented that reg for the largest org in the country subjected to it AND had been apart of the first federal audit of that org by the controlling body. I worked with the government to refine their audit and learned how they were expecting the organizations to comply with the reg since we were the case study for feedback and fines.

I got an auto generated email that they were impressed with my qualification but I did not meet all of the expectations for the role or some #$!&@. The job application process is #$!&@ hell. I hate it so #$!&@ much.

Had an interview to be a consultant with a big ass bank I’ve never worked for before. Went well, they contacted me to setup a second within minutes of the first one ending. Hoping it works out, not really what I want to be doing but it pays decently.

My manager sent me an email today to my Gmail account asking for my monthly status report by COB on Friday. The email ended with him saying he has no news when we will be recalled. You serious, Clark?

"Organizational Reshuffle." I work for a technology piece of what is largely a service oriented company and we've been kind of shackled by organization wide goals/practices that don't really work for what we're trying to achieve. Also, our products that we offer don't get sold/packaged together very well so there's a PITA process clients have to go through to deal with us. This should, in theory, just lead to less internal red tape.
I had a meeting at the Pentagon with lots of generals. They were like from a movie. Better looking than Tom Cruise & stronger.

Or, if the lack of red tape means a better customer experience, and thus more customers, the company will grow.
