"The people who can drive themselves further once the effort

Just got off the phone with Aveda. I didn't get the internship. They gave me the feedback that I was over qualified and I was late. Both true.
I feel terrible about being late. I had plenty of time to get there, but ended up going down the wrong street. I guess it doesn't really matter, if I am too qualified then they wouldn't have given it to me. I am disappointed. I really liked the guy who I interviewed with and was looking forward to working with him. On one hand if the internship wasn't going to be challenging than it's good that I am not doing it. I saw it as a good way into the company. I guess I should look at the positives.
HR and my interviewer said I had a strong CV.
They had a chance to meet me. I am still very passionate about working for Aveda, hopefully I would be considered if something were to come up.
I know that I am too qualified for internships and work experiences.
The experience has moved me one step closer to finding a job that I will love doing.
I have to admit that I feel knocked back. I really wanted this internship. I choked up when I was talking to the woman from HR on the phone, but I am only human.
I sent the HR person and the interviewer an email letting them know that I would still love to work for the company and that I would keep in touch. I did enjoy everyone that I met.
I wish I could say that I wasn't upset, but I am. I did learn from the experience. I was unsure of myself before regarding experience. I had been hearing that I should try to get some experience here. So I tried that, but it doesn't seem to be the right path. I have to got to rock the experience that I have and remember that I do have a lot. My major at MCAD is a lot different than most and I gained a lot of experience from the course and the internships that I have done.
I will move forward and focus on that.
