I had a phone interview yesterday. It was great on my end. I answered all of the questions and the manager sounded pleased and satisfied with my responses. I have been constantly checking my email and praying for a phone call. At the end of the interview I asked 2 questions. I also thanked the manager for taking her time out of her busy schedule to interview me and I hope I hear from her soon. The question is usually how long after a interview do a hospital usually follow- up and was I too pushy with my last statement? I am so anxious that I am picking apart that last statement saying that maybe it turned her off😭😭😭😭

The wheels of hiring can be hideously slow. If you don't hear anything by the end of next week, try reaching out.  She may have had other interviews, has to pass info back to HR, etc.  The hiring process can drive you crazy, just hang in there!

It is very slow. I guess they don’t sense the urgency and anxiety on the applicant’s side.

They do, but there are always others to interview, and maybe have to work around schedules to do so.  Then there is sorting through the info gathered and contacting who will do in-person interviews etc.  You'll see it a gazillion times in your career
