Waiting for a Call Back

When job hunting one of the most anxious points is when you’re waiting for a call-back regarding an interview. It could be leading to a second interview, a job, or a “thank you for your time, but we don’t feel that you’re a good fit”, and the waiting game can be a pretty stressful experience.

Dealing with this situation can only get better by continuing to explore your options. If you know that you have a number of different options then you’re less likely to focus upon the individual cases to the point where you start to feel anxious.

In the situation where you’ve been given a specific timeframe by which you should hear back from them, but that time passes and you’ve had no phonecall, then this can also be very stressful. It can be difficult to know whether or not you should call them back yourself in this situation, but generally it is better to wait, unless you’ve got a recruitment agent at hand, in which case you can make your enquiries through them without any worry.
