    Greetings to you all.
    Ill make this quick.
    On Friday I had a job interview and it went well. I felt I had the job and was told to call on Monday to discuss when I could start and other specifics. So I call after one as requested and left a message. I have yet to hear back and am kind of getting nervous.
    It's mud season here and jobs are very hard to come by.
    Do I just wait it out or do another call? I have a suspicion her days off are today and tommorrow and I would hate to bother on her weekend.
    Thanks. !

    I'm sure this has been discussed before, but searching with my blackberry is a tad rough.

    Hmm, no edit function on the mobile. Anyway the reason for the urgency is because this upcoming Thursday was the desired star date..

    And its been a whike since I've had to apply for a job.

    This is one of those deals where I think you have to sit and wait. You might try emailing, though, to follow up.

    Good luck.

    Call again.

    Then send an email saying you're just following up, great meeting with you, looking forward to talking further.

    Good luck.

    Don't leave another message if you get voicemail, though.

    I was given her cell to call. I might call the direct line to the store instead, but I'm not too sure.

    Maybe she wants to get freaky ...

    Haha.

    I thought of doing an email to her receptionist saying thanks for help setting up the interview and then let her know I called as requested and etc..

    I just hate to look desperate when I want to be persistent (but not over the top).

    Well thanks for the help from those who gave their input. However, I was notified yesterday by someone else with the company that I did in fact did not get the job and that my resume would be in a different stack if someone should quit or be fired. I'm furious, absolutely furious after being told I had the job.

    Welp, back to the search. There's always going back to NY for the summer if nothing shows up... ugh

    That happens, Mad. Often the people who think they can call the shots find out someone else wants a different shot called for whatever reason.

    Keep your chin up.

    Just got a call back about a resident manager job I applied for the heck of it. Hopefully I get a call back soon about an interview for Monday.
