My Fiance had an interview and didn’t get a call back for 1 mo and a half later, and he didn’t actually start for 3 mos. It takes some time.

Darling Husband interviewed for a job in October that he didn’t start until Jan 1st.  It did take us both by surprise that it took so long to get throught the process, but now he is happy as a clam at his new job.  It was a bit stressful, but in the end was worth it.  Have you looked into restaurants in your area?  You usually make more than at fast food.  I am sorry you are having a tough time finding something and will keep my fingers crossed that you find something soon.

My work place has a security clearance process that’s excruciating for applicants.  I applied in Nov, got “hired” in late January and couldn’t actually start working until mid May.  Perhaps they have some sort of screening that they’re doing?

I interviewed for my job in early January, and received the job offer in mid-March to start the last week of March.  By that time, I’d already left the job I was at when I interviewed and started another job!  But I had told my new employer that I was waiting to hear from [current employer] and they hadn’t yet offered, or denied, me a job.  When I got the offer for the [current employer], it was such a good offer, I had to put in my two weeks at the other, new job.  Good things take time!

Two months in advance is pretty standard in my field unless there is some pressing need to fill the position immediately. The hiring managers usually want to have a lead candidate in their back pocket but aren’t in a rush to have them start as long as the department is adequately staffed. We’re kind of a skeleton crew here so hiring a new person is a really big deal, they have to be absolutely perfect and qualified which makes them less likely to rush the process. But like if multiple people resign or go out on leave at the same time, thye will be much more likely to get you started earlier.

Mine didn’t take two months, but I was finally offered the job about a month after I first interviewed, and I still don’t start until next week, so in total, from the time I applied to when I start, it’ll be just short of two months. Sometimes it takes time to weed through the applicants and decide who’s the best fit and conduct reference checks.
