I had given up on getting an interview from a position I had applied to a few weeks ago. The fact that I had not gotten an interview did not really surprise me as I was probably at the lowest level of experience that MAY have been acceptable. Frankly, I figured there was no chance.
Today, I get a call telling me that I need to call that office and speak to a certain person....that they have been trying to reach me for over a week to set up an interview. Given that I had not received any voicemails or missed calls, I found this highly suspect.
I went ahead and called to speak with the person. She informed me that for the past week+ she had been calling and my phone just kept ringing without ever going to a machine. Then we set up the interview.
Whats odd is I have a voicemail service that picks up every call after 4 rings. Its an outside service from the phone company, supposedly taking every call no matter how many people call at once since its not a physical machine. Definitely curious as to what happened there, but the important thing is that I got the interview.
