    That happened with me once too. I thought it was nice of them to inform me that I wouldn't be interviewing rather than me waiting and wondering if I'd hear from them.

    I would just tell myself that they rejected me because they didn't get a chance to meet me. Their loss!

    Don't feel bad!! I have gotten 10 rejection letters in the mail from schools and I didn't interview at any of them. Schools getting ready to start. There will be openings.

    It happens, and it probably means that it wasn't the right job for you. Hang in there! ;)

    When I was in grad school, one of my colleagues told me about getting rejected from the grad program at UNC. Apparently there was some bug in the program that printed up and sent out the rejection letters, so my colleague kept getting rejected by UNC once a week for 6 months. Talk about twisting the knife! :eek:

    They probably filled the position internally and so there wasn't really an opening to speak of. That just happened to me when I applied for a Kinder position.

    mldouglas - what sites do you search for jobs? I too am from mn and know it is a tough market. I found edpost, mnasa, and the archdiocese sites to be the best. Good Luck!

    i had a nun (who was also the principal) from a catholic school tell me on the phone i would "definitely hear something" about a position i applied for. long story short, the phone never rang :( AND they had the nerve to call and ask me to sub...as if! don't worry about this kind of stuff-it happens to everyone! just roll it off your back and keep looking...you will find a job! -meri

    Oh I hate when that happens. Chuck it up to fate and move on though. A lot of schools I've applied to haven't even sent me that. I've got enough of the "rejections-without-interviews" to line my birdcage for months though :rolleyes: . They're nice in a way though because at least you know you're out of the running for that place and you can focus your energy on something else instead of waiting to hear from them.
