Super Job no longer listed??

  1. 0
    Had a super wonderful job interview today. I was told "we will get back to you within two weeks". "We have several others we are interviewing and need to make a decision but won't until at lease next week.

    Today I was on Career Builder. THAT job is no longer listed. OMG what does that mean? The website for that hospital also shows the job has been filled. I only interviewed this morning

    Was I given the old cliche' about "we will be in contact?" ?? Now, my wonderful job interview doesn't seem that it went the wonderfully?

    I am sure that they just had plenty of applicants that were already interviewing, that they just didn't want to take any more applications! Just make sure you follow up after a week if you haven't heard from them! But really, do not get too worried!

    Agree with Abak...they took it off because the position is in the process of being filled. good luck!

    I was a bit taken back. You always know when an interview goes well. This was exceptional. I sent an email professionally written back to managers who interviewed. At this point, this is all I can do.

    Waiting game. tick tick tick.

    With the economy the way it is right now, any job that gets posted lately has a huge influx of applicants. I recently posted 2 positions for RNs in my clinic, one part time one full time, and I received over 200 applications in the 5 days it was posted. I asked my recruiter to take the job posting down so that I could sort through the applications I did have. I ended up interviewing only about 5 people face to face, but those interviews took about a week to do. This means I phone interviewed first, then a week to face to face, then reference checks on the candidates I likes (another week), and then finally I was able to offere the positions. So there was a few weeks that the job posting was down, but I was still actively looking for people (if that makes sense!).

    Email isn't acceptable. Write a thank you note by hand and mail or hand deliver it.

    And I agree, they probably just took it down because they had a sufficient response pool and know for certain they will hire one of those candidates, and want to stop the flood of responses.

    That is your personal opinion, not a fact. I have done a great deal of hiring and actually prefer a professionally worded email to a hand written note. I can refer back to emails much easier than I can to finding a note somewhere in my office. Also sometimes the notes don't even get opened due to getting stuck in a stack of mail. I interview a lot of people, I really don't want them hand delivering notes - that would be a lot of interruptions in my day. To me, email in this day and age is the perfect way to go.

    You put together a professional resume, you did not hand-write it. I believe in being professional throughout and either sending a business formatted letter or same as email.

    I think that the little handwritten note card deal is ridiculously bush league. Cards and notes are for thank yous for party and dinner invites or gifts given. Just MHO.
