It's the most wonderful time of the year! Unless, of course, you're waiting to hear back about a job you've applied for. The resumes have been sent and handled with care, with hope that some job offer soon will be there.
So, we wait. Waiting is not fun, but this is that time of year that decisions about hiring new talent get delayed, and delayed. You see, the holidays are upon us. Everyone is gearing up for the next several weeks and before you know it, we'll all be ringing in the New Year!
So, what's going on behind the scenes at the company you so desperately want to work for? Why does it take so long to get an answer? Is anybody out there? Does anybody care? Even though you may feel like "just a castaway, an island lost at sea, another lonely day, no-one here but me" (that's a song lyric if you hadn't noticed this and the others!), you've got to consider what's happening now at some companies. You've got to appreciate things you may not fully understand.
This is the time of year when last minute, end of the year meetings take place. Coordinating schedules between key decision makers at companies becomes tough as people juggle their calendars to fit just a few more meetings in before 2013 begins. What kinds of things could be more important than sending you that offer letter you've been patiently waiting for?
What can you do during this time in order to maintain your sanity?
Remember, this is the time that companies must close out the year 2012! Keep your cool and make wise choices when it comes to how you approach this important aspect of getting hired!
What have you done to get ready for the waiting game?
