Our expert says:
Its sad when an employer creates such fraught situations in which friends are pitted against each other. Maybe you also hoped to get the combined post ? That in itself isn't unreasonable. But I see no reason for her to be bitchy about the outcome now, as she might have been out of a job altogether. All you can do, if the opportunity arises, is to talk with her and say frankly that you find her changed atitude towards you hurtful and unreasonable, and would like to understand it and work to improve things. If she is unwilling, then maybe the friendship is indeed over, and you'll need to move on
