    I got told this by a potential employer this week. I wasn't certain what that really meant. Now, I feel that it was the nice way of saying "We don't want you". Anyone else ever heard this? It was brand new to me.

    Sounds like something you say to dump your girlfriend/boyfriend.

    It's a nice way of saying, "You don't have what it takes to get us where we need to be."

    Or when a girl says "Not even for $500.00".

    To summarise - you won't be getting a second interview.

    But thanks for coming.

    500 is usually only a first offer though.....there's always room for further negotiation.....what was the topic again?

    "Your direction is not our direction." Find a new direction.

    I suppose the context in which it was used may tell us something different.

    Can you type the section of dialogue it was used in...?

    Was it "we're going in a different direction, now please take your knee off my throat"?

    Indeed. I've decapitated many a consultant for using such phrases.
