Love that post.
I have also been a "new" grad for a long time. About 8+ months.
I've been on 5 interviews. I've recently landed a casual position within a nice LTC and have received a call back from a full-time position at an awesome hospital that is 15 mins from my house (just trying to get back into contact with them)
I believe everything happens for a reason- what's meant to be will!
I always thought of myself as a "poor" interviewer.... nerves and the fact that I stutter. There would be SOO many things I would want to say during an interview and it just wouldn't translate that way.
I felt like everyone around me was landing jobs- no one was "friends" anymore. No matter how much you helped someone in school... don't even think about asking them for help now.
I just felt like a had a million things against me and I couldn't catch a break.
I went on this last interview on Wednesday (at a hospital I dream of working at)... and let alone the position is F/T. I claimed this... this is MINE... I'm ready for it and I prayed about it so hard.
The felt the interview went well- I challenged him with some questions.. I gave him my references and he gave me his card.
I followed up with a Thank You email. He informed me during the interview he would only inform the successful person by the end of the week.
On friday I had a voice message from him asking me to call him... he also replied back to my email - asking again to call him. I am HOPING with everything the call is saying I got the position.... Seriously I will cry like there is no tomorrow.
They wouldn't leave a voice message saying you got the position right? they'd rather speak to you? ahhh I'm trying not to get my hopes up but please God let this be mine
Anyways, I called him back and left a message... but I hope this doesn't become a game of tag with it being a long weekend and I heard word he might be on vacation next week :S
(sorry that turned out to be a lot longer than expected)
