Recently, I am seeking for places to have my internship (Industry Training). I applied for a lot of companies and one of the companies ask me for interview. Today, they called me and saying that they accept me as their trainee. I was very happy. Just now, they called me again and told me that I am being rejected because they had chosen another person. What! They are playing my feeling. I am feeling really bad and sad. Have you ever experience such problem before?

W[i]ell, I had similar experience. I did not come to the point that I am already accepted but, they ask my resume, because I just applied online. Well, after that I never heard them again. The thing is that, the job I am applying for just required GED.. and I have a college diploma and Post graduate diploma too. I am just wondering why they did not called me back when in fact I am more than qualified for the job I applied for? hahahaha .. it made me laugh but I was upset at that time. Well, yours is a different story. That is very unethical and very unprofessional in their part, because you are already accepted and then was refused because they accepted another person? It might be that the other one is a relative of the hiring personnel? That's sad and annoying.[/i]

Hi, I am very sad. Now, I am still looking for more training places. Hopefully I can get one that is good.

Boy, I would be pissed if I were you. I feel for you! Personally, I have never went through such an experience before. But hey, its okay, they didn't deserve someone with your talent. They made a wrong decision to put you off at the very last moment :) The possibilities out there are infinite, you might find an even better offer some place else, where they will treat you better and appreciate you more! Oh, all the best with your industrial training, learn all you can from who are experienced! take care!
