I'm looking for some honesty here, because I have a lot of self doubt.
I had a phone interview for a telephonic care manager position which I'd love to have and be able to work from home. I was very caught off-guard, as I did not receive any notice of the phone interview. The supervisor simply called and began asking me interview questions. I'm a visiting nurse, and I was on my way to go see a patient who needed me as soon as possible for wound care, so I was driving too when she called. She was very nice, and asked me first why I was looking for a change. I told her that my hours have become unpredictable and that I'm looking for more non-clinical work aimed at helping patients with insurance needs, because I feel bad for how confusing and overwhelming it must be for these patients.
Face-palm for telling her my hours had gotten unpredictable, although I did not trash talk my organization or boss.
She then asked me about my strengths/weaknesses which I answered, telling her I was a very organized person and had good communication skills, and that my weakness is a touch of OCD which causes me to initially take longer sometimes due to double checking, but that I am working on it.
She asked me about my daily duties on my job, I told her about seeing my patients and case managing, touching base with doctors/family, supply companies, etc.
She then took the last half of the interview to tell me about the position, the hours, what a typical day looked like, and what orientation would be like. The do prefer someone with home health experience which I have over a year of.
She said to look out for an email or phone call if they would choose to bring me in for a face-to-face interview, but I haven't heard anything one way or another. In our health system, we can go online to view our application status, and it says "Not in Consideration," but the last job that said that called me shortly thereafter to offer the job and said that the website wasn't always right.
I guess I'm just worried since it's been a week and I haven't heard anything, good or bad, and why did I have to even mention my unpredictable hours at my current job?! I'm normally a very good interviewer, but I think I was so caught off guard and I had patients calling me on the other phone and I didn't have time to pull off because I had to go see this patient. I hope I didn't screw this one up, I've never wanted a job so bad before.
Any thoughts- honest thoughts please- would be appreciated so that I can hopefully put my mind at ease until I hear, or don't hear, something. Thanks!
