Today I checked the website of that firm I had applied to a few weeks (4, almost to the day!) back--I still hadn't heard anything from them, no "thanks, got your resume," nothing, even after I followed up with a little "Still really interested, would love to talk with you!" email. I clicked on their "employment" link and saw that the notice of the opening was gone, so I checked the list of attorneys, and sure enough, they've got a new one. He's a partner, even, so clearly more qualified than I was--me with my no experience.... But still. Could you not have at least emailed me and said, "Sorry, we found someone?" I'm so annoyed.
So, cross that one off the list. I guess everyone's "good feelings" were wrong. :(
