I just want an answer!

I recently made it through a first and a second phone interview with 2 different people for a well known Veterinary Hospital. Both interviews seemed to go well and it would actually be a stepping stone toward my dream job. My 2nd phone interview was 7 days ago and at the of the interview I was told that she would like to set me up with a working interview of sorts so that I could see what the Client Coordinator position consists of. (I actually already know but I’ll do whatever I need to do in order to follow the hiring process and get the job, I really want it!) She told me that the Practice Manager I did my first interview with would be the contacting me but I haven’t heard anything from either of them. I did a “just following up”! Email to the 1st interviewer on Tuesday and have gotten no response, I called and left a message saying Thank you and following up with the 2nd interviewer yesterday (Friday) I was told she would call me back and she didn’t either. which I know may have been too pushy maybe. The 2 people I interviewed with are in different states, holding different positions. They both seemed so positive towards me and the second one, who lives in my state and I’m assuming would be the closest contact person for the veterinary hospital even said she wanted to get me set up with a working interview and that the first person who interviewed me would be in contact with me early in the week. That was last week. Should I just mark this one up as done and over? I just want to know one way or another. I would have thought they would have at least sent an email or letter saying I didn’t get the job. Myself and the Practice Manager have both invested almost a month of emails and phone calls for this position. What do I do?

Since the follow up appears to be something that needs to be done on their end, if they don't call you back in a week...move on! It's just not worth wasting precious time. Especially if you have bills to pay!

I really feel for you. I work in an industry where the "working interview" is standard. I recently interviewed with a firm that I really wanted to work for. I endured an email interview, phone interview, 2 in person interviews, and 2 working interviews They left me hanging for a while before they "went another direction". I honestly think they just wanted a couple days of free labor.

Ive found that companies have no problem dragging this out. What u are going through does not matter to them. I would not stop pursing other opportunities while waiting to hear from a particular job. Keep your options open, Id say even a month into the new job, things might not work out.

Hi Amanda

It is true that everything went well on your interview but the fact remains that this is time most people are heading for the vacation . May be the guy you did interview with which they asked you to contact might be on vacation , but don't relent your effort in pursuing your precious gold . In this aspect contact the other guy you had interview with and enquire about the the guy they want you to contact . Tell him you want to speak to that guy and see what he may say but i can see you working at that job but becareful for what you may say to set them off after you might be hired , good luck Amanda and pray before you call anybody , use this psalms : read them then call the guy : 109, 51, 18, 91, 35, and 121. Use them only at night time before you go to bed .

Dear Amanda,

Sorry but mark this one as done. I say it time and time again, been there done that lol. Just a heads up for future reference I try to never email strangers, as people in the hiring process, h/r, recruiters, interviewers, etc. Phone calls are better always. Email just get read and not answered or deleted.

Here's what I would do. Call one more time and if you get no answer or response then you truly know it's a done deal. Also not to worry you are not being to pushy.

Goodluck Amanda best of luck!

Regards,

Kevin...

Go to the clinic, and see if they hired someone else, or call them.

Go there in person. It shows more determination and power. Besides commitment.

I wish I could be of help, but I'm still trying to figure this out myself. Just know your not alone in your struggles.

If you really want a job somewhere show up in the morning and be waiting before the first person comes in the door. I can tell you from experience this kind of initiative has gotten me a job on more than one occasion and even after being flat out told that I wasn’t what they were looking for. Look them straight in the eye reach out your hand and when they shake your hand give them the firmest handshake you can without causing the other person pain and tell them I will be here waiting every morning until you hire me so you might as well because I really want to work here and you will never find another person more dedicated. I know this because I’m the only person here before everyone else because I want the person with a key to open the door know they aren’t alone with the need to be here first thing. I need to be here too.
