    I was scheduled for a phone interview that took about 30 mins. Next she said that I made the cut and that she would like to schedule me for a seconde interview with the hiring manager. I never recieved the call and sent multiple follow up emails, I can only assume that something got mixed up in the wires and that they eventually settled on another candidate.
