I received a job offer that doesn't excite me. I was sure that I was going to a different job offer from a company that did really excite me. I presented to them yesterday and felt so strongly that I would hear good news today. However, I got the call that they really liked me, but decided they needed a quality that wasn't on the original job description. I actually received that bad news right before a different interview and had to put on my best face of confidence when I was just punched in the gut. Talk about resiliency. Anyway, is it foolish to walk away from an offer when that's all you have, and you're laid-off from work? I'm interviewing with other companies, but I'm afraid they will end with bad news like the other promising company did. I'm struggling to maintain all of the necessary qualities of a candidate and juggle presentation poise, executive presence, sharp intellect, engaged questions, storytelling - all of the things required to interview at this level. I'm tired.
