I wanted to thank all of you for the advice and good luck you gave me. When I created the post, I was so nervous that I was freaking out, but you all helped me calm down and remembered to breathe.
I had passed my technical interview, and was invited to complete a practical assessment; I completed that and ended up waiting a little over a week for a response after I had submitted my assessment. The director called me and stated they went with someone else for the position that was further in the hiring process than I was.
So, unfortunately, I did not get to the last interview and did not get to an offer with this company, but they want to keep me on a list for when a position opens. I really love this company, and everything that they do, and I put in a lot of effort and hard work + long hours to get this far – it would seem for nothing if I just walk away. My current position allows me to spend some time on professional development, and I’m in no rush to leave. I still have some development to do and I think its a really great learning experience for me.
Sorry for the sad news, but I’m hopeful for my future.
