Job Interview

83 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Well, I dont know why Im posting this here. I just need to get it out of my system I guess.

I applied for a job that is in my industry (jewelry) however, I could potentially make 7x what Im making now (YIKES) plus benefits and paid for relocation.. I called the recruiter for the job, and he gave me an impromptu phone interview and told me to read more about the company and its policies, and then call him back the next day. After researching the company I was VERY excited and called him back. We spoke for about 20 min and then he said that he would be forewarding the owner my resume (this was friday). I emailed my resume to him and called him on Sat morning to ask if he had got it and he said that he had, and he would give it to the owner today (Mon) and I should hear back from him by Wednesday. If the owner likes what he sees he will fly me out to Nashville for a face to face interview and then make a decision from there.

Well gosh darn it, this wait is KILLING ME!! Its almost as bad as immigrating!

So now for my question... Do you think if I haven't heard anything by Wednesday I should call and see if the position has been filled, or should I just sit tight and assume that if I haven't heard from them by the end of the week, I am no longer being considered...? :wacko:

Im pulling my hair out here!

Also, I think they will do a credit check, the fact that I am an immigrant to the USA means I have like ZERO credit. Will they be able to check my Canadian credit score (not so good..)?


Invictus..

Out of the night that covers me,

Black as the Pit from pole to pole,

I thank whatever gods may be

For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance

I have not winced nor cried aloud.

Under the bludgeonings of chance

My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears

Looms but the Horror of the shade,

And yet the menace of the years

Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,

How charged with punishments the scroll.

I am the master of my fate:

I am the captain of my soul.

If you don't hear on Wednesday call on Thursday morning.

I'm in the same sort of spot as you, I been looking for a job since DEC 2009 and not found anything. Last week a job popped up on NEWORKS and it is pretty darn close to my dream job, I sent an online app and an email with cover paragraph and resume attachment. They called me a week later and booked a phone interview with me. I had the phone interview last Friday 16 min interview. I'm not sure how it went, everything seemed good and they said they would contact me this week sometime. I'm VERY qualified for the job, more than what they are requiring. Pins and needles until they call me this week lol!!!

I will be calling the place on Friday if they don't call me during this week.

ARG.. its sooo frustrating. I shouldn't be so panicked, because I do have a job. The pay just stinks. The one Ive applied for is a very high end jewelry store and Im pretty sure Im qualified. I just couldnt gleen any info off the phone interview that I had.. the guy had a freakin poker voice!

I will call on Thurs if I dont hear anything.

Keeping my fingers crossed for you Inky!!

If I were in yer shoes - I'd call the recruiter asap and chit chat about 'normal process for hiring with that company', then 'some idea of specific turn-around time for the position you've applied for'.

Talking with a recruiter doesn't interrupt the process that the COMPANY is doing, usually.

Me either!!! Its always been face to face, and usually I can tell when I walk out how I did. Im driving my hubby crazy with all my fretting! Of course I cant tell anyone else in town, because I dont want my current employers to know that Im looking around. Grrr...

Anyway, lemme know how yours goes ok!

See, I thought about that. The thing is, is the "recruiter" is actually employed there. He has to leave because he is moving across country for family reasons. His boss (the owner) told him to find his own replacement and then foreward the resume's to him. So, I think its kinda good news that he decided to put mine foreward, because he wouldnt want to ruin his own reputation by putting someone thats not qualified up, but I dont know. I hope he wasnt blowing smoke when he told me he'd foreward it either.

Still call and follow up. Think about it. Would you rather hire someone who just sits around waiting for stuff to come to them, or would you want someone who has a "can-do" attitude and makes sure to follow up so things don't slip through the cracks? Of course, I wouldn't want to hire someone who called me twice a day to check in, but calling the day after you were told to expect a follow-up is perfectly reasonable. If you have his email, I'd send him an email the day after you call as well.

Good luck! I hope you get it! If a credit check is a problem tell him he can do the check with the Canadian equivalents of the US credit reporters - he will need your Canadian S.I.N. to do so. You can certainly explain the situation that credit doesn't normally transfer to the US but it should be accessible from the US for those who are willing to look it up.


“...Isn't it splendid to think of all the things there are to find out about? It just makes me feel glad to be alive--it's such an interesting world. It wouldn't be half so interesting if we knew all about everything, would it? There'd be no scope for imagination then, would there?”
