Just went through the process of waiting for a job offer, and honestly what helped (in addition to bugging family & friends) was interviewing for other positions as well. This made the suspense more bearable and also made me feel about more in control of my destiny. Having options helps to give you leverage whether it be to negotiate salary when you do get the offer you want, or just maintain your sanity while you wait, and possibly open doors to other potential opportunities. It also helped me practice my responses to the interview questions. I’d also say the power of positive thinking. I claimed it, said it out loud, and dismissed any negative or self-doubting thoughts. Someone else gave me that advice and it helped on a number of levels. Lastly remember that what’s meant to be is yours and all things work toward the good, so no matter what happens it’s what’s supposed to happen. If you’re spiritual pray and meditate on it too.
