Seriosuly. I was devoted to this test.
The organization who manages the certification sent a letter out last week to all us Jan 20 test takers. It read something like this: We are sorry. We take our communications seriously. It has been a month since the test and we are just now letting you know that your results will not be available in 2 weeks but rather the week of April 9. Only 11 weeks from the date of test. Yes, we know its a Sca.ntron test but we stink at communicating that we dont even know what pass or fail is yet cause we didnt standardize the test before letting you take it in January. Oh yeah, and dont call the office to find out whats going on. It might divert our attention from the job we havent done but should be doing....you know, like scoring the test!
And now I am mad. My performance review cant be done until my results are in. Passing means I have more negotiating power when it comes to a salary increase. Failing, well that would stink. But still, they said it would be 6 weeks til results and now I have to wait a full 11 weeks.
Mad. Irritated. Annoyed. Mad. Communication is one of the cornerstones of my profession. How can the "elite organization" fail so miserably at that?!
And there is nothing I can do about it.
