    Possible awkward situation at work.... Help please!

    So I interviewed for 2 different positions within the same company around the same time and I landed the job that I wanted and got rejected for the job that I didn't really want. So now I find out that I need to work closely with the interviewer who rejected me. Is it going to be awkward?

    Will there be trouble in the near future?

    There should not be a problem. Don't take it personally that the rejecting interviewer rejected you. They may have been having a bad day, or maybe they just wanted to hire someone else, but you were chosen by the other interviewer, so it's fine.
    Just do your job and try to be friends with everyone you work with. That's is all that is required.

    It shouldn't be awkward - you perhaps didn't meet the qualifications for the other job as well as another candidate, but that interviewer isn't going to hold it against you and will probably congratulate you on nailing the job you do have.
