Missed call from Nintendo...

Hey all, thought I'd share that after about a couple months, I was contacted by a representative from Nintendo about if I was still interested in being a game developer.

Unfortunately, it was a missed call when I was at work and I was away from my cell phone for at least just over a minute. I left a message that I'm still interested, and another a couple days later as a follow up.

Just wondering if I blew my chance or I just need to be patient, because of all the lousy bad luck I've had during summer this really stung the most. Anyone experienced something similar?

If it was a missed call, how do you know what it was about? Oo

I think this belongs to off-topic.

Anyway, when there is a lot of competition, the human resource dept won't really bother to get back to you as they should have a long list of candidates, they'll just move on until they hit the number of people they should be taking, once that happen, opportunity is closed. It is normal actually. I'm talking from experience.

All I know is if I was working for them, and calling people I would change my name, just so I could say "Hello, its me Mario"

Ha! Funny how things work out... looks like I was given a second chance today during work, talked to the rep who was very nice and had to verify a few things.

Looks like I'm official!
