I didn't get it...

I didn't get the job that I was really excited about a couple weeks ago and I'm disappointed but I'm not horribly so. Don't get me wrong, I REALLY wish I did get the job and I really do need to start doing something different than what I'm doing now... but the woman that I interviewed with was very nice and when she called to tell me the news today she reassured me that if the posting had been for a junior-level position (instead of the mid-level) and implied that if the one other person who had already done QA work didn't apply that I would have been her pick. (If there was anything that worried me about my chances for getting it it was the fact that I was attempting to skip right to the mid-level from the non-IT world.) She said I interviewed VERY well. (I think it was my best interview to date.) She also mentioned that she could tell I was "very analytical" and that it definitely seemed like I wanted to be a programmer eventually and she encouraged me to try for any entry-level programming positions that I saw or if she posts a junior level QA position to try for that, too.

So that's where I'm at now. Somewhat disappointed that I didn't get a job that I really wanted but reassured that I did the best that I could do and was just beat out by someone with more real world experience.
