Quit playing games with my... mind?

So I just got a phone call from the company I am currently DYING to work for. They called to ask me two more behavioural based questions. So I answered them to the best of my ability, though they were HARD. Very hard.

So I'm feeling kind of medium about that. It's a bad thing because I obviously am "on the cusp" of the group... I didn't blow them away and I'm not a "for sure" hire, yet it's a good thing because I obviously didn't BOMB the whole thing, and they want to know more before making a decision. Unless they're just doing this to make me feel better about myself before they tell me I didn't get the job. I really don't know what to think.

The only good thing about this whole situation is that she said "I'm putting your file back in the recruitment pile and you should hear from us in the very near future". So at least I know I won't be in agony for too much longer.

Dearest Random Abstract Thinker,

Employers don't really do things to make people they don't want to hire feel good about being rejected.

They are calling you to ask questions because they are interested. The "recruitment" pile is just that: a pile of resumés of people they want to recruit to work for them.

If they are saying that you should be hearing from them soon, that is good news.

What is it about us humans that we constantly think we are on the cusp of being discovered? Unfortunately, we don't think about being on the cusp of being discovered for our brilliance, aptitude, strengths, talents, and wonderful potential. No, we are constantly thinking that we are finally going to shown to the world for the huge fakes that we are. We are going to be exposed for knowing nothing.

Guess what? It's not true! You actually ARE brilliant, strong, wonderfully talented and with tremendous aptitude.

So RELAX! You will be working soon in a job that is right for you and with people who value you. It may not be the first offer, but it will eventually happen! Believe it!
