Any ideas--How do I vent this anger appropriately?

We have a need for a "go to" / gopher at my company. I referred a friend for this position and was told by the manager who'd become this gopher's direct supervisor that my friend was a perfect fit per his resume and my "vouch."

I spoke with our COO (this manager's direct supervisor), and he agreed that it was a great fit: we can get the guy cheap and he can handle all the running around that's been draining all of us otherwise busy folks.

Last week, the requisition was rushed through management, and I was told to get my buddy in ASAP for an interview. I was led to believe the position and the req were literally created for my buddy. I was asked--in fact--whether or not I knew my buddy was ready to give notice at his current job because we needed to get someone in here very quickly.

Well, the interview happened this morning. I talked to my buddy afterward, and he felt that it had gone well. I heard no word from this manager or his boss--both of whom I felt like I had a good relationship with. So I asked the COO politely, and he responded that this manager had changed his mind. The manager was now looking for someone higher level than my buddy. This manager, of course, does not appear to have the moral backbone to say anything to me.

I am enraged. How does what I've been told is a sure thing fall apart in this manner? Is there anything I can say to this manager that will reflect my frustration and anger? I feel that these two have been disloyal to me, especially considering that the gopher would be taking a lot off my plate, leaving me to move on to bigger (and perhaps) better things.

I did. And I've smoked like 10 butts. Nothing's soothing the rage yet.

Find some way to hold your manager over the barrel and use that leverage (and common sence) to get that position for your friend.

Remember upper management will always look out for what’s best for the company and not an individual. That just the way it is. I feel your pain. :mad:

Also, when making statements about the ignorance of others, we should refrain from being ignorant ourselves.
