I recently had 5 interviews with a design company that posted on a job site. I had 2 phone and 3 in person - including a test project that I was able to submit within 5 days while working a full time job. After a month, and not called in after the project was submitted, I was told they went with another candidate because I had shown creative abilities and the job was more administrative, even though the job post was for design. They offered me a second very basic project where I would be working with the person they hired over me to do mostly administrative work. I'm not sure what to make of this. I'm a NY'er and trying very hard not to be jaded, but it doesn't seem right to me. Any insights?
