Better move fast or someone else will take your spot
I was supposed to go to a job interview this Friday. I was called (via an email) during my ”wedding week” in Sweden and felt kind of excited.
Then, four days later I suddenly received the exact same email as I had already gotten, only though the date had been changed. To the upcoming Saturday.
So, from Nov 6 to October 24. And it was October 21.
I immediately replied saying I couldn’t make the 24 since I wasn’t in China, asking why the sudden change.
Reply: “We would be excited if you could make it to China for the interview.”
I again stated it was impossible asking if I could come any other day.
And of course, I got no reply.
Once back in China I did some phone call attempts but I kind of already knew it wasn’t going to change anything. In fact, all the promised “we’ll call you back!” was never put into practice.
In China, you better be ready to move fast or you lose out on opportunities.
And when confronting/forwarding a slight complaint about it all, don’t expect any response.
