FML - The follow-up
jamminguitarist Say more :
Sorry, let me clarify. There was a business opening up in our area, so there were many openings up for the jobs. We wanted to both get jobs there. They did group interviews then passed the ones they liked onto the next one. We were in the same group interview and he made it past. I wouldn't be stupid enough to tell him about a single job that was available, but I was stupid enough to think we would both be hired :P but I went job hunting afterwards and one of the places is interested and it's a better overall job so it's not an FML anymore

They could smell your stink of desperation and thought you might end up stealing from them. Your friend seemed cool, and therefore, trustworthy. Desperation is not a good vibe to put out when looking for a job, or a date, for that matter.

Who said anything about there being "one job open"? I'm guessing that the OP applied first, they were impressed with the friend, they were not impressed with the OP. Even if the friend hadn't applied there is no guarantee the OP would have gotten the job since they were not impressed with the OP.

Are you guys stupid? How could you think you'd be working together if you apply for one and the same job? Especially you are to blame for not convincing your "competitor" to not apply or lay down after he got the job. So, YDI.

That's why I don't tell my friends about my ideas until after I've done them or I am in the process of doing them. You may never know who might want a piece of your success.
