Yesterday's Interview

Ok, some of you might remember that I had a second job interview yesterday. It went great! I asked him when he will make his decision and he said that it would be by the end of the day today. OMIGOSH. I am so nervous!!! I have kept my cell phone on me throughout the apartment..

We got along really really well, which I think is a big plus (we have common ground which I was happy about). I asked him how many others he was interviewing for the second time and he said two others.. I'm not sure how my chances are as he said he couldn't disclose that, he had the second person that afternoon and the third this morning.

Ahhhh... this is nervewracking!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It's already 7 pm here babe.. I don't think so :(

I would expect a common courtesy of a phone call if I didn't get it. After all, there were only 2 other people that made it for the final interview. How long does it take to make those two calls to the people that didn't make it?

Never give up hope. If this one does not work out, that is because you are destined for something better. Just because they said they would decide today, dosen't mean they did, nd if they did, It dosen't mean the other candidate accepted.

Not necessarily. Perhaps he needed to run his decision by someone else first and they weren't available. Or maybe the third candidate re-scheduled his interview. Or maybe the guy's wife went into labor. You never know but I agree with everyone else - he'd be crazy not to hire you!

Maybe I will just call him on Monday and see what is up.

Adillo, thank you for your kind words. It has been so hard to find a job in another city. Nobody wants to hear the word "relocate". No matter that we're going through a recession, either, and that I have been looking since February.
