Yup. When I began my 3-year curacy stint, it was a given that a full time post would be available.
6 months before the end of the 3 years, I was told that I was a fantastic all-rounder who could be employed in a wide variety of locations.
I was summoned to hear where I was to be offered - and the bp read through a folder of all the vacancies and explained why they wouldn't be suitable. Even got me to identify some of them for myself - too senior a post, wouldn't accept a woman etc.
I got so excited at the big build up as to where my place was to be. Then he closed the folder and said, that's it. We have nothing for you. Start answering ads in the paper.
Crushed doesn't begin to cover it!
However, 13 years on now, I would not have missed for the world the jobs that I did do - although you can hear it still rankles!
