Waiting with baited breath....

I HATE applying for jobs.

Well...I dont HATE it, but I hate the aftermath, and waiting around for them to call you back.

I had a second interview at a pretty good agency downtown toronto the 10th of October, and after my first interview they loved me so much they called me 10 minutes after I left the office and said "we know we have other interviews, but we're already asking you to come back."

So I went...they said I would hear by the 17th. I didnt.

I said "If I dont hear by the end of monday i'll call tuesday after work and ask them if they've made a decision about the job as of yet."

I was working today 6:30am-3pm....I was literally driving home to call them, and on google to look up their number, and I decided to check my voicemail first. There was a message from HR "This is so and so calling from such and such. Could you please call me back?"

IS THIS GOOD??? I mean, I called back, and left my number...but that was a half hour ago. Im desperate to hear something...

I mean, is it protocol for agencies if you get the job, to leave it on your answering machine? Or even if you get the job, do they ask you to call?

Im paralleling it to the doctors office. When they ask you to call them back, its never good.....BAH. NOW I have to wait, maybe until tomorrow!!! I just want to know. I really want this job, and would do really well at this job. I just HATE this waiting bit of it. BOOOOOOOO.

Changing jobs and applying for jobs is stressfull, even more so if you are currently unemployed! Where downtown?

Applying for jobs is a lot like dating. The first meeting is just a bunch of questions and answers. Both sides trying to be the one that the other side wants them to be but being hesitant to show their true colours too much. Then the waiting for the callback for the second interview/date. Oh, that's murder.
