During my current job and my last job, I've been made to feel like the second choice candidate, despite eventually getting the position.
The first instance, I only heard about them considering another candidate until a couple of months in. They decided on somewhere else shortly after the interview, and I had to re-interview to get in. Tried not to take it personally and all that, it was a big step up for me after all.
This job really took the piss, though. I interviewed for a 100% position, which was eventually split between myself and another person 50%... the other half went to a closely-related family member of one of the interviewers, no less.
They didn't make me interview twice, but the other one ended up taking on the more simple and immediate tasks leaving me in the wind for months about what my job role actually was.
Is there something I'm doing wrong, here? Is it an indication of something? Is it just that hiring is often a process of elimination rather than selection?
