Don't take it to heart fella..

I had a CEO contact me on LinkedIn a while ago from a local company.. I was looking to leave my current (at the time) position and headed to their office for an "informal chat" as such regarding a position that wanted to discuss with me.

I had every part covered (and some) for what they needed (I've been coding in PHP since 4.0.3.. for around 19 years).. everything went really well with the CEO and CTO. I got told they'd discuss things and would get back to me by the end of the week (3 days)... that was last July... I'm still "waiting"!

Happily moved on to a new company now (which I'm very happy at!).. but my better half always tells me "things happen for a reason".

Don't be too disheartened.. it happens, and you could well find when you do land your next role, that you'll look back and think "I'm so glad those last opportunities didn't work out".

dang that sucks for sure! I really hate when companies ghost people like that. But what you said was absolutely correct, sometimes or most times the wasn't the right job for you anyway, and the right place is waiting for me soon.

Thanks man!
