Notes and observations

The post that disappeared

For a few hours on Friday, a post appeared on my site celebrating the fact that I had landed a temporary job with the Census Bureau.

Before I left Friday for my job interview at another outfit, I returned it to draft mode. Why?

Well, I got a call as I was preparing to leave for the interview, telling me that there had been a mistake, and that the job I had been offered had already been offered to someone else, and filled.

I was assured that I was the next person in line for the same type of job, which should open up in a few days.

That’s the way it is in the new economic order, I guess. Even the government can pull back an offer.
