What Happened to My Internship?

Savvy Confessions: I Don't Get What Happened to My Internship!

This anonymous poster in our Savvy Confessions group wants to know what happened to her internship. Chime in with your thoughts below.

So here is the deal — I applied for an internship and was told to submit a little test. I handed in all the supplemental materials and I was sooo excited, because (not to toot my own horn) but I did a great job. But then, the morning the materials were due (I had already turned them in) I saw ON TWITTER that the position had been filled. I don't get it? What happened? Should I say something?

Truly yours,

I agree with suzieleung you just have to keep on looking! You were probably a great candidate, so you will find something eventually! Most companies won't tell you why or they will just give you the "it wasn't the right fit speech."

I wouldn't say anything. If anything, wait a bit, and then ask to follow up on your application. Most employers won't disclose why they turn people down. When candidates follow up with me for reasons why they got turned down, I have to follow my company's policy, which is to not disclose reasons (for employment law reasons). Sorry...but you just gotta move on at the point!
