I agree with both number 7 and 10. OP, What makes you so special that you think your better than your would be supervisor? Ever considered that maybe SHE applied and completed or currently completing the same internship that you just got rejected from, which would therefore entitle her to hold her current position? And so what if she wore jeans to the interview. Companies can have a casual dress day every week policy you know. If you already think that little of your would be supervisor, why the hell would she want you on her team, seeing as you've pretty much decided that you know more than here and as a result will disrespect her leadership at every turn. Not good for the team dynamics..

It doesn't say the gender of whoever got the position. As for your would-be superior, OP, she's allowed to wear jeans if she wants to. She doesn't need to impress the people she's interviewing.

No, the interviewer didn't wear jeans. The OP was referring to either the person who got the internship or someone else who interviewed. Why would the OP say "She wore jeans to the interview" when referring to the interviewer? She'd say something like "the interviewer wore jeans" if she was referring to the interviewer.

The interviewer was about to become her boss, her "would-be superior". The OP would have said the successful applicant or superior candidate if she meant another job seeker. I assume the details about degrees and experience came up in the interview. How would she know the other applicants' qualifications?

You will get your karmic luck, soon enough, and the kid that they were stupid enough to put up on a pedestal that high will soon fall and break their head. Hope be with you, victim of idiocy.

OP only said the would be supervisor didn't have a graduate degree. That implies they at least have a degree. Plus, they're supervising an intern, that doesn't require a great deal of experience.

That's a big assumption....I've met some extremely intelligent and qualified people that are in their mid 20s and like to wear jeans. I've met way too many dumb people in suits too, I wonder when corporate culture will stop this "dress for success" nonsense. I work far more efficiently if I'm comfortable (button-up shirt with no tie, casual slacks).

Sorry to hear that. It sucks, I know how it feels when you know you're capable of the job and get rejected by people who probably need help writing simple word documents. Survival of the fittest and all that... its tough out there in the real world.

She probably just appeared more apropriate for the job bcos she fitted more what they needed. if a hot new employee with a rack the size of boulders is what they need in their sex deprived live then... that's probably not for u.

I've got to agree with number 7. You don't seem to have the best attitude either, just based upon your FML. Maybe some of that entitlement came across in the interview?
