    Interview

    had a phone interview with the hiring analyst. several days later was invited to the office to meet with 1. the analyst's former associate who works as an analyst, 2. the current associate 3. the director of research. Meet with the first guy. He asked me why didn't I bring a printout of my stock pitch (no one asked me to print out my stock pitch). Told me I dropped the ball for not bringing a printout. Second guy discusses the role with me and expectations of a associate. Third guy cancels the meeting on me and declines to reschedule. My gut feeling tells me that the first guy went to the third guy and told him not to bother with me. I follow up with everyone, including the guy i was supposed to meet with but never did. Asked to for another appointment but received an email saying i was not selected
