We sat down and she told me the reasons why they chose the other candidate. It was a tough match, we each have different strength, probably like the Microsoft vs Apple. I am talking about the era before Satya Nadella took over.
At this moment, the company finds that it would be better to hire the other one since they need to secure more funding and awareness in the corporate. That did give me wonder since they claim me being very passionate and so good in communicating so why I could not excel the so called corporate way of networking or fundraising. And then I realise they would prefer someone to be more business executive director for the brand image rather than innovative one which I totally understand.
And I realise this is really the first time I did not criticise myself for not getting the offer, for not performing well, for failing, for not able to be the one that they want. I kind of stay true with myself and feeling confident that it was okay we do not work out for now.
In fact, they do like me a lot and would like to carry on engaging me for long term projects, it may be voluntary basis, yet I do find their long term strategy is aligned with my personal growth.

Yes! She spent two hours talking to me even I was not their staff, how lucky I am to get this opportunity to ditch my self doubt and start another kind of relationship.
Thank you universe!
