I work as an RN in our hospital. A job in a department opened up that I am very well suited for and want more than anything! The problem is that although I have done all the necessary paperwork and interviewing I am the low man on the totem pole right now. Although I have been a nurse for 11 years, some of the younger grads with NO experience in this department have applied and have the seniority on me.
The person who makes this decision is going to be in her office tomorrow, and then will be out of town until the middle of February. I HATE to be a pest, as she just had a death of someone close to her, but I REALLY cannot stand the waiting and this anxiety about whether I will get this job.
Should I follow-up with a phone call? Email? I don't go back into work for 2 more days so I won't be just "running into her" at the hospital. HELP!!! This job has only been open and posted for 4 days, but she will be out of town for so long it seems!!! ANY advice?? I have not been able to sleep and this weekend, work will be unbearable just wondering and waiting!
I have been told that the job has to be posted for at least a week, but the decision maker will be out of town for over 2!!!!
