@LadyBlackheart:  Ugh that’s the worst. Don’t be afraid to send a follow-up email, wish them happy holidays, etc.

I know you said you already left a voicemail so there isn’t much you can do, but sending an email is harmless and it doesn’t put them on the spot to answer right away.

@LadyBlackheart:  Sending good thoughts your way! Honestly though, don’t get your hopes up about getting a call from that first company by the end of today. While it would be nice, don’t forget they most likely have a lot of things to do before the holiday weekend and calling you probably isn’t their top priority right now. I’d say wait until next Tuesday to followup if you haven’t heard anything. I’m sure Monday will be a busy catch-up day for most people. 

I agree the waiting game is the worst! When I was waiting to hear back about a job, I was constantly checking my phone and would get really upset when Friday afternoon came around and I still hadn’t heard anything. It was horrible knowing I had to wait the whole weekend without a word and then start my obsessive phone checking again on Monday.

Once again, GOOD LUCK and I really hope you get that job offer today! It sure would make for an awesome Thanksgiving! 🙂
