I had an interview for an internship and the company never called me back...as it turns out I actually had a class with someone who applied for the same internship and got the offer. Funny thing is...my grades are better than his are, my knowledge of the subject is better than his, my desire to learn is better than his (he's lowkey a dumbass), and my social skills are better than his. (We're both in school for information technology, so you know how lowkey and arrogant some techies can be, I'm pretty chill and easy to get along with though. He's the type that assumes you're wrong and talks over you, even if what he's saying makes no sense)
So he's white and I'm black...which leads me to believe that either
- I got skipped over because I'm black
- or he talked so loud in the interview the managers assumed he knew what he was talking about (even though he struggles with the basics of networking) and gave him the job. I'm willing to bank it's the first option tho.
To be honest I saw it coming though, during the interview I felt like the questions they asked me were a bit pointed than they should be...almost as if they were TRYING to prove I couldn't perform. It got to the point where they were asking me about specific port numbers, acronyms, and a whole bunch of it stuff that had nothing to do with the internship.
