Well, I heard back from the hiring committee. They had nothing but fantastic things to say about me. But they decided to go another way. No reasons given; in fact, they told me I didn't get the job and then I had to stay on the phone for another 15 minutes listening to how great they thought I was... but that I wasn't hired.

Seriously, if you're ever the person making those calls, just let the person get off the phone so they can cry into a pillow.
