I wish I knew for sure that this place would be open for me next year. If I was covering a maternity leave, I’d be pretty certain; I probably wouldn’t even consider the possibility. But a sick leave causes nothing but a swinging door, a hanging question mark. Not that I want someone to be too sick to go back to work, but I wish i didn’t have to scramble around looking for work, while working. I’m up to rejection #3, not that I’m counting. And I guess I could consider what I have now as being a positive experience. At least one set of interviews panned out to something.
I wish you could get feedback on interviews. Something more than: we’ve decided to move ahead with other candidates. What exactly was it that made me not one of those candidates?
