Today, after interviewing for a promotion to a position that was created with me in mind, I eagerly accepted a call from my boss, expecting good news. Turns out, they found a better applicant, who they don't believe will need support from the position I currently hold, so it's being eliminated. FML

You'd think they'd keep that job and see if he doesn't actually need support. Yet here they are going on a hunch and probably open that position again.

That's unfortunate! I hope you are able to find an awesome next job!

Fair dismissal. Go enjoy your next job! It should pay more when you find it too :)

that's not true at all

This is where you create a rock band and sing about fighting the power. That'll show em! Really though that's pretty shitty.

You should go give your boss a wet willy, just for old times sake

That is really shitty :( my heart goes out to you.

WOW, that is just... Cruel, no heads up or anything. So sorry OP, I hope the best for you.

That's messed up. Sometimes things like this are a blessing in disguise, and if they're willing to drop you like that it might be life's weird way of giving you an opportunity for something better.

seems like maybe a p.c. way of releasing you. I hope that's not the case, but it would save a lot of headache with the hr department.
