Actually I was kind of expecting it, it was the same person I interviewed for before that said I didn't have enough experience. So why did the other people who interviewed me for the same job say I'm a strong candidate??? Its just so confusing.
Then I realized where I really need to apply is not Marketing, but the Internet dept. So I email this girl, out of the blue, in the internet part of the company, here's our conversation:
I was looking at the organizational charts and saw an open position for Layout Artist under you. I was wondering if this information is current Ive been trying to get in over there. (Hopefully its okay to ask this). Thanks!
The chart you were looking at was from 2006. I have moved twice since then and I am sorry to say that I dont have any positions under me. I think there are some open spots over here that you could apply for. Have you looked online? Ill ask my boss too, I am pretty sure she is on the art hiring committee. I am sorry I cant do more.
No, thats great! Ive been looking online and Ive been to a couple of interviews in Marketing. This last one they said they had a hard time deciding between me and another graphic artist (this was _______ and in Advertising, theyd probably give me a good recommendation). It seems like Im always so close!
I thought maybe I would have more luck with your dept since my background is __________. Also, my long range plans include eventually getting into web design, so it seems like the internet dept would be a good fit for me. Id really appreciate if you were to ask your boss about positions. I also appreciate your helpfulness considering I just took a shot in the dark in emailing you I didnt know if you would respond. Thanks so much!
Its not a problem. My boss is one of the interviewers for our department. She said that she hasnt heard of any openings, but she will ask her boss to make sure. It will be next week before I can get back to you. He is out with pneumonia.
It sounds like you would certainly fit in over here. Ill let you know what I can find out next week.
