JOB SEARCH TIP: When you’re waiting for a decision…

4 Nov

For those of us in the United States, as of early November 4th, we await the final election decision. This waiting can be emotional, frustrating, and stressful.

For those who are searching for a job, waiting to hear about a decision regarding employment can also be fraught with the same emotions.

What can you do when you’ve been interviewed for a job and the prospective employer tells you’re still in the running but they don’t have a decision?

~ Don’t stop the rest of your search! Even if you are a finalist in a job, continue to work any other opportunities on your board. Until you have a firm offer and start date you should assume you don’t have the job.

~ Get feedback from coaches who know the prospective employer to determine if there is anything else you can do to advance your best interests.

~ Take care of yourself. In these stressful times when there is no decision, take care of yourself and get into a circle of folks who can encourage and support you.

What is common about these three pieces of advice? They are within your control, and in the midst of waiting for a decision you want to control what you can.

Hang in there.
