Last week I had a phoner with a potential employer, set up via an agency. I really hit it off with the hiring VP for the company, and he said the thing that every developer loves to hear: "We're going to start over and build from scratch." It was one of those slam dunk job encounters, and a good situation on top of that.
Then I get the call today from the agency. Apparently, the HR department of that company is throwing a fit because the guy I talked to, who is fairly new himself, is overstepping his bounds or something, or more to the point, the kingdom builders in the HR department don't like someone else finding people instead of them. In other words, no new hire. Shit.
I think I'm going to go see a movie.
