Ask DN: Has not getting a job you applied for ever been a positive in your career?

    Yeah, I interviewed a company once that invited me in to meet their CEO, (it was about 6.30PM by the time I met with him, 25 minutes later than agreed), when I left the office at 7.30 there were still a good proportion of the staff left in the office. As everyone was meant to finish at 6PM that's not a great sign. Also the CEO was asking questions like he read them out of a manual on how to ask interview questions (but for Silicon Valley startups) so most of them were tedious pointless quick fire questions that had nothing to do with the work itself. So in the end I'm glad I didn't get the job (well at least I don't think I did as I never heard from them).
