The mainframe had been haxored

Today, I found out my email hasn't been working for 10 days. Normally, this wouldn't be a big deal, but it just so happens that a position opened up for my dream job while this was happening. I would have gotten the job, but instead they gave it to someone I just finished training. FML

I question my email app if I don't receive something after a single day. Heck, it's happened to me before and I've had to uninstall/reinstall for it to work again. Test your email daily by sending to yourself, especially if you're prospecting for promotions/new jobs. I'm sorry you missed out OP, you don't deserve it; try to be more aware of work related (Or even personal!) communication connections and don't be afraid to question IT if it isn't working! :)

Something similar happened to me - I applied to a job and they emailed me for an interview, but gmail never sent me an effing notification. It just really sucks.

BUT on a positive note, I ended up landing an even better job a couple months later that I love! With an amazing culture and great team and I couldn’t be happier. Like, I’m shocked at how great it worked out.

You’ll find something even better, OP, and sorry that happened to you. Just keep searching and don’t let this situation get you down!
