Waiting on a call after interview!

  1. 0
    Had an interview for an SICU position yesterday. I thought it went really well, but it is torture waiting for a call. I know it may not even be til next week that I know anything. I would be THE luckiest new grad ever to score this position. I know it would be a lot of work and extremely challenging and I am up for the challenge!! (And of course I told them that)! A friend who works in their sister unit said they think I'm great, so I hope that's a good sign!!

    Anyway, who else is waiting by the phone like a high school girl waiting on a boy to call??

    Fingers crossed, and I know that wait is killer. Don't give up on it though. I interviewed for my current job in early April and didn't hear anything until the second week of May. I had pretty much given up on it when I got the phone call. It only takes one

    Meeeeee!!!!! I've had three interviews these past couple of weeks. The first one was two weeks ago, and they said they would make their decision within 2-3 weeks. I had one yesterday, and they called today to say that they are checking my references. I also had one today that I'm really eager/anxious to hear back from, but they didn't give me a definite time frame!

    I totally feel like a high school girl waiting for the phone to ring!! Haha

    Good luck to you!

    I had an interview yesterday too and I feel like I am waiting for NCLEX results. I really need a job I am running on fumes in the bank.

    Thanks!! I've been half-heartedly putting in other apps....cause I really want this job, but I can't put all my eggs in one basket as they say.

    Congrats on your job!!

    Waiting, waiting, waiting.... lol

    Still applying for other jobs, too... And I should focus this nervous energy into cleaning the house since it's been neglected since I started nursing school!
