Thread: Should I wait or move on?

  1. #1

    Question Should I wait or move on?

    Monday I interviewed for a quite good job. The interviewer was very nice and seemed to like me and my qualifications and whatnot. But still no word yay or nay. :bang: Should I start applying and interviewing elsewhere in the meantime, y'all think? I've spotted some other impressive looking openings the last couple days, and I'm-a getting tired of waiting for an offer. :P #kurwa

    You already know the answer. You were probably gaslighted during the interview.

    yes, apply to other jobs. why are you waiting? you can always turn down other jobs or interviews. the more you do, the more experience at it you'll get.
    ifn you need a job, there is no reason to limit yourself, that's loser thinking.

    I agree, fill out as many as you can, you might end up going to ten of those before you actually get hired at one. Maybe a couple will call around the same time and you will have a choice.

    Keep your options open and apply to the other jobs, if the first one does finally get back with you it won't mean you can't take it.

    Just feeling indecisive about it, and I wanted to give these folks a decent chance at me. But I'm feeling pretty irked nao , thus I've already found several other similar places to apply. I reckon I'll have some applications out by the end of the night.

    I always enjoyed interviewing. Back when American was great, I had some great interviews where we smoked and drank beer during the process.

    At the same time, going to an interview for a job you don't necessarily want and don't absolutely need can be fun times.

    What if you get a 2nd offer, more money, but not as cool as the 1st? Then you go to the one you want and say, "Man, I really like you guys, but I got this other offer for 20% more." ---- Then the awesome job you want bumps it up a notch and you've got a bidding war

    Don't put all your eggs in one basket. You're setting yourself up for disappointment. Double-down on the interviews while you're on a hot streak.

    Lol... I had a few of those myself. Had a job wrenching on big trucks one time where the soda machine had an unlabelled button that dispensed cold beer on the bosses tab.

    yeah our free soda machine had a beer button on it until the insurance agent saw it.... I guess we should have left it unlabeled.

    Depending on your state's welfare programs you generally only need to apply to 1-2 jobs per week to keep your welfare. So no reason to look for any other jobs for at least another week. Just relax, sit back, and pop open a cold one
    It's all about taking action and not being lazy. So you do the work, whether it's fitness or whatever. It's about getting up, motivating yourself and just doing it.

    Ours was unlabelled for quite awhile and then we put OUT on it.

    Even when you think you are totally happy with your job you should always keep your options open.

    When opportunity knocks you need to be ready to open that door.

    Use analytical skills and a good dose of reality to determine the advantages and disadvantages of opportunities and make your decision. When you are gainfully employed and are valuable you can dictate suitable terms.

    You should probably apply for other jobs.

    Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.

    I think you should give the place a courtesy follow-up call. That way they will know you are definitely interested. Squeaky wheel....
    Whenever I was on the interviewing side of things, it actually helped me make a decision. Because you know the people who are truly interested and you can narrow the field down a bit, that way. I think your chances are better, if you make a follow-up call. Just quick and to the point, thanking them for the interview, letting them know you are definitely interested. Short and sweet.
    There is only one kind of freedom and that's individual liberty. Our lives come from our creator
    and our liberty comes from our creator. It has nothing to do with government granting it. -Ron Paul

    Keep applying. Even if the interview went really well, its not a guarantee the job is yours.

    Other side is "do you have a job" or "does a job have you"?

    The FAILURE of the United States Government to operate and maintain an

    Got a bite toady. One of the places I applied to wrote back to myself and all the other applicants that made the cut. Just asked a few things like "can you work full time?" "Can you work evenings up until 6:00?" "What is the hourly rate you must make in order to consider this job?", etc. I feel pretty good about this 'un.
