How to Make Your Job Search Less Stressful

A Few Simple Tips to Keep Your Sanity During the Interview Process

What Really Happened...

Meanwhile, in reality, here is what happened on the HR side of things:

After your interview Monday, they spent the rest of the day catching up on email. They met with another candidate on Tuesday, and their candidate for Wednesday asked if they could reschedule for Thursday. HR calls for a meeting on Friday to discuss everyone’s feedback, but forgets that one of the managers is taking a 3-day weekend, so they plan to meet after lunch Monday. Their afternoon meeting goes well, she returns to her desk to put out some fires, and plans on contacting all the candidates Tuesday morning.

So, did HR lie when they said they expected to get back to you in a few days? No. It’s just that things take time. Issues arise. Everything takes longer than you think.
