I fell for the job offer fallacy.
Date: 9/2/99

Thank you so much for the article regarding the job offer fallacy. In the past 2 weeks I have interviewed 6 times with 6 different people for a (believe it or not) HR position. I was asked to come back and told how everyone loved me -- all 6 of them. I also did all the pre-employment screening tests.

At 5pm today I received a call stating I did not get the job. Being a hiring manager, I've seen the ins and outs of HR and I'm ashamed to say I fell for it.
