I posted here a few days ago -- I'm applying for a job within my company. I was approached by management for the job and was basically told that it was mine. I was even invited on meetings as though I were already in the role. However, the manager later told me that per company policy, they would need to advertise the position to other candidates. The manager apologized, said he was sorry that the process was taking so long, and so on. I had a successful first round of interviews, many with people I already work closely with. Then, this morning, the manager took me aside. He apologized again for the ongoing process, and said that the final round would be a strategy test. He also told me that they were reviewing two other candidates. I feel completely and utterly deflated. After having been told that I had the job, I now feel knocked around and nervous. I could use some advice as to how to make the situation work to my advantage and ensure that I get the job that I was told I had to begin with. Please no flames. I could use some serious, candid advice, which DL is good for from time to time. Thanks.
I had to do this, hired my favorite anyway.
