I received an e-mail from my recruiter. My heart started racing as I was expecting a yes or no kind of feedback.
Instead, I read “I am not seeing the replies to the sample questions.(…)” explaining that the file I had sent was the wrong one!
I cannot express the number of emotions I felt at that moment. My instinct was to make it right as soon as possible! So I answered right back with the correct file and a HUGE apology.
Part of me though: “You had one job!“. The other tried to feel hopeful: “this will probably not be a reason for rejection”… or will it?”
