I'm new to this forum. I am a new grad and I just passed the NLCEX in CA in October. I recently interviewed at a hospital and I thought it went great. The interviewers kept smiling and saying "this is great", blah blah blah. So I left pretty confident.
The HR rep that was sitting in at my interview said that "I will get back to you early next week". My interview was last Wednesday, December 5. It is now the following Thursday. I sent them thank you notes the following day after my interview, and called both my interviewers yesterday to follow up on the process, but they didn't answer so I left a voicemail. They have not called me back
My question is, do I still have a chance? It has been 8 days... Surely I thought that if they were going to offer me the job I would get called by Tuesday, but now I feel that my chances are slimming with each passing day. I know that they interviewed a few other people, and there were two departments that they were looking to fill.
Does anyone have any idea when I should receive a phone call or if I even have a chance at the job still? Any insight will help...
I am also a new grad (graduated this past spring) and had to deal with the uncertainty of waiting after an interview. I know how frustrating it is and I just want you to not lose hope because it will happen for you!
I had a total of three interviews. One I never heard back from anyone at all, the second HR actually called me to tell me I didn't get the job but it was a good two weeks later (as if I had my hopes up still) and the third interview they practically offered me the job before I even walked out the door, though they had another person to interview.
So my point is, you kind of know right away that you got it. This has been the experience of many of my fellow classmates as well. Usually you get the offer pretty quick if you are going to get an offer. I got the call with an unofficial offer within an hour of the interview and got the official offer the next day. I figured that if they think you are a good fit right away, they don't want to lose you. There are many many new grads out there but not all of them are right for each job; when it's right, it will fall into place for you.
It took me a good five months to finally get that offer. This is a bad time of year to be searching for any job. At my hospital, they are cutting way back on staff to meet productivity for the year, so not many units are hiring right now.
Just don't give up; it will happen for you. Good luck.
