The Waiting Game: Surviving Job Offer Anxiety
Have you ever felt like you totally rocked an interview? You had all your questions and answers prepared, the hiring manager really seemed impressed, and they even hinted at a call back. You wake up the next morning with a huge grin on your face expecting an email or a phone call, but you receive nothing. No worries, right? “They will probably get back to me tomorrow," you think to yourself.
However, tomorrow comes and goes, as does the next day and the day after that, all without a phone call or an email. Days turn into a week, and you begin to get a bit antsy. Hope starts to dwindle as the questions begin to mount.
- What's taking so long?
- Was my interview not as good as I thought?
- Did I say something wrong?
- Did I misread the cues?
- Was my writing sample terrible?
- Should I send another email?
- WHY HAVEN'T THEY CALLED ME BACK?
