Today, I e-mailed an employer to ask about a job I had applied for earlier. The employer in question was on vacation. The person who replied had the position which I had applied for mentioned in their signature. FML

That's awkward, OP, but if they're hiring there's a reason. Maybe that person is leaving and they need a replacement. Dont assume the worst

Don't jump to conclusions easily, maybe he's just a temporary replacement. If not, then FYL since they didn't tell you.

1. Sneak into her office 2. Write a filthy, hateful email to the employer 3. See her get fired 4. Ask if the job is still available 5. ????? 6. Profit

Alright devil, calm down.

Yeah, if that person somehow didn't know that a replacement was being hired, that is 100% the company's problem and not yours. (It may also be that they want more than one person in the role, so this may be someone you'll be working with quite closely)

maybe the person is leaving the firm, or that person needs a coworker..think positive OP, good luck.(a follow up would be nice if it worked out)

Think of it this way, OP...If an employer shows that level of consideration to applicants, he's probably not treating his employees any better. Things work out the way they do for a reason. You'll find a place that suits you better.

I don't think that you got the job. Or maybe that person didn't know they were getting replaced?

still follow-up... they could be filling two positions with the same title and job function but reporting to different managers/supervisors. happened to me literally a month ago so I was glad I contacted them and still had the job

Eh, not a big deal. They were probably just leaving the position and need a replacement.

It could be that person may not know they are soon leaving. I suppose the know now, not your fault, don't worry about it. If you get the job, do it to the best of your ability.
