to be checking my phone every ten seconds?

I had two job interviews last week, both seemed to go well but the job that I really wanted (at a records office) seemed to go brilliantly. Both interviwers said they'd let me know on Friday, Monday at the latest.

Friday and Monday have gone without any sign. They're both internal vacancies so they'll let me know via my work email. I'm not at work this week until Thursday (lower and lower hours is the reason I'm applying elsewhere) so DP, who works at the same place has been sneakily checking me emails and is going to let me know when something comes through.

So I've been sat here the last couple of days checking my phone every ten seconds just in case I missed him. I so desperately want to move out of my current job, my confidence,self-esteem and happiness have been completely battered by my managers and I want so badly to have succeeded in winning the interviewers over.

Why haven't they got back to me!? Argh!

I would be the same, I have zero patience for things like this.

Good luck, I hope you get the news you want (and soon, before you drive yourself mad!)

It's crazy, I'm usually fairly patient but I just can't handle this!!

I feel for you OP, I applied for a new job 2 weeks ago and still haven't heard whether I've got an interview so I jump every time an email alert comes through on my phone.

Best of luck flowers

Is it worth chasing? They said Friday / Monday latest. That's been and gone. Worth an email / call ? Shows you are interested and proactive etc?

Well I didn't get the other job, but I hadn't done as well in that interview so was kind of expecting that - it wasn't quite full time so the records office one suits me better anyway because that one is. I just have to keep my fingers crossed that I'll be luckier with that one. Still gutted though, as that's one down that I definitely didn't get and the hope of being able to escape where I currently work has been diminished slightly.

HR is sending out the emails so will probably hear back about the other later today.
