    I'm starting to warm to his charms.

    Sweep me off my feet, Cornholio.

    I'm starting to get really stressed out about that job interview I did last week. I haven't gotten a reply from them yet. Granted, they said "We'll get back to you in a week or so" and today marked exactly a week since I did the interview, but despite that I'm wondering what's going on. I know exactly who I'm competing with and I never had much confidence that I would get this job in the first place; those other folks are perfectly capable in my opinion. It would just be sort of annoying not to get this job, since I'll end up being a walking cliche, namely one of those people with an advanced degree in philosophy who delivers your pizzas. If I don't get this job I'll just have to accept some prole work. I really want to make some money and move to a better part of the Phoenix metro area (I still have a buttload of savings though.) In the meantime I better start putting together some applications for PhD programs. I feel like I probably have things to look forward to in my life, but right now I feel like I'm stuck in limbo.

    Call the employer back tomorrow or friday.

    You should really try to make fewer stupid posts, it is a bit excessive.

    I've been thinking about doing that. Is that generally a good thing to do? I haven't done many interviews in my life. Most of the time I've gotten jobs because I've known the right people or I had enough experience in the particular job that the employer didn't even see a need to interview me.

    The problem with this is that naturally I don't deem my own posts stupid. In that case I wouldn't post them. So it's all back to opinions, and they're always subjective. Surely you must understand this.

    Cyth: the one thing I've learned from working in a university is this...things move horrendously slow. If they tell you Monday, expect it to be Friday.

    Yeah i think as long as you don't call back too early or sound pushy when you call back, it's generally a good thing to show them you really care about the opening. Maybe they'll interpret it as a sign of initiative too, which is always a good quality for an employee.

    This really applies anywhere unless they really need someone immediately.

    Cyth: You should usually call back if you have waited the alotted time frame and they haven't responded to you. I usually wait an extra day or two though.

    At least they contacted you back, employers are usually not that courteous from my experience.

    Didn't realize that I switched shifts with someone else and ended up coming in four hours earlier then I needed to.
