Got your messages. Sorry about the delay. I spoke with the CEO and let me give you an update.
1) CEO has been asking me about marketing and our long term plan. he wants to invest a lot more money in marketing for a number of reasons in 2H’07.
2) As such, he wants to make sure whomever we bring in for Marketing is a real pro.
3) I represented that I believe you are very good, and your references where solid.
4) The CEO wants me to investigate one other candidate that he has forwarded. We are interviewing them on Friday.
I apologize for the process. This is not how I like to work. However, he’s the boss. I will let you know where we stand on Monday.
So, Monday came and went... didn't hear anything. So Tuesday at the end of the day, I sent a follow up note, just asking if he had made a decision. I've not heard a thing from him. I can not believe that now, after he said there was an offer for me, that he won't even call to let me know that they are going with some one else. No apology or anything. Really can't believe that! A new low for the job search process.
