I graduated BSN, in Decemebr took my NCLEX in March and started looking for jobs in the begining of April. I have been applying nonstop and last Friday I just about gave up Washington state because I never even got so much as a call back from any job I applied to...until yesturday, I got a call from a blood center for an RN/phlebotomist position I applied for a month ago. The interviewer set up an interview for today at 8AM.
I showed up early and it lasted 30 minutes. I was offered coffee/juice before and after the interview but I declined (maybe I should have accepted after the second offer...
) He seemed to like me and the interview went smoothly. He told me the salary 26/hr and benefits, and he said I would be full time. He asked when I could start...I said as soon as possible. He also asked if I have any job offers at this time, I told him no but I had some prospects. He also told me there would be a background check and if there would be any problem with that. I said no, he looked me striaght in the eyes when asking. I did not flinch at all (I thank God I have a clean record and no criminal history).
He said if I get an offer I will recieve a call and if I don't I will recieve a letter in the mail. I did not get a definite job offer after the interview.
I am wondering if this is a bad sign that I did not get the job. He told me in the begining of the interview that there are a lot of applicants... Do you think if I had got the job he would have let me know? Or is this a sign I likey did not get the job?
Feel free to share your good and bad experiences in interviews.
Thanks so much.
