For the past three and a half weeks, I have been waiting to hear whether or not I have been hired for a job I interviewed for. I was assured that I would be told whether or not I got the job in about two weeks!
Since then, I haven’t been looking as actively for a job as I had been before the interview. I was pretty sure that I had gotten the job for two reasons: there was more than one position available and I had yet to be rejected.
Now I sit here, uncomfortable as pregnant woman who is almost two weeks overdue wondering what to do! I have emailed two people at the company regarding my situation. I have yet to call. Why haven’t I called? Well, I am afraid of being rejected over the phone! I would rather read it in a cold email.
Today, I decided to throw in the towel. I am not waiting to hear from them any more. If I do hear from them, that would be great, and I would gladly accept the job. However, since I have yet to hear from them–I have gone back to applying to several jobs a day.
What is my count for today? It is early afternoon here in California, and I have already applied to five jobs! That is pretty great I think.
For the rest of the day, I might update my blog some more or just start on some of the ideas that I’ve had for my Etsy shop — and apply for some more jobs in the evening.
What is the lesson for today? Know when to hold’em and know when to fold’em, people! Thank you, Kenny Rogers!
