I probably shouldnt' be looking at it that way, but it is tough not to. The other woman got the placement and I didn't. My interview went well and hers did too. I think she got it because she has a Master's degree in Instructional Design and I just have a measly Bachelor's in English. The placement was for creating job aids for salespeople. I *know* I could have done it and done it well, but her credentials were admittedly better than mine.
Like I said yesterday, I didn't even want this particular placement that much - I just don't like the fact that the whole office sees the two of us go up against each other and I lose. Guess I can just park my but in front of that copy machine cause that's what I'm going to be doing while I'm waiting for another placement to come along and she is off doing what she went to school for.
I know that sounds bitter, but I'm feeling a little raw about the whole thing right now. Just feeling publically humiliated more than anything.
