Ugh that feeling is the worst.  I recently got offered a job but it was contingent on a crazy extensive background check and drug test.  It was two weeks from the date of the offer before I got the confirmed offer – not to mention the company running the background check was incompetent, emailing me almost daily needing a W2 from 2007, a pay stub, etc.  I would cringe a little with every new email or phone call.  Thankfully it’s all over now!

Good luck! Let us know when you hear!

No advice, but I’m in the same boat and I haven’t even been called for an interview yet! I spoke with someone in personnel a week ago because she told me that if I would open up my availability a bit more that ‘it would be very good’. So I went in and changed my schedule around to open myself up more and I haven’t heard anything back. 

Every time the phone rings though I run to it and every email makes me nervous. I feel like I have to psyche myself up just to open my inbox.

So no advice from me, but I’m right there with you.

Good luck!! At least you know that the hardest waiting period is over (those initial two weeks). When the phone call or email does come in, your mind can relax. I hope it works out for you!

I wouldn’t hold too tight on that 2 week deadline. I’ve gotten phone calls everywhere from a couple of days to MONTHS after their deadline! I would contact them if you dont hear from them in a week though.

@Macintosh:  Ahh! I know just how you feel, I also feel like we’re channeling the same job obsession muse… ๐Ÿ™ 

Hopefully you hear from something soon!

I am in the same boat!  Waiting on two different jobs and it is making me CRAZY.

This was me a few weeks ago waiting for a part time job to call me. It would have been a dream job, but I got the rejection email instead. I hope you get good news soon, and even if you did not get it, I hope they let you know because I hate when places wont let you know either way.
