You just heard the news. That promotion you were expecting went to one of the other candidates. You really thought you had this one in the bag. And the successful candidate - give me a break! No way that was a good decision, as far as you can tell. You don't know why you got passed over, nor what it means for your career at Acme Does It All, Inc. Is it over? Are you washed up? Or do they have something better in mind for you.
What do you do?
