That is the case today for me.
As I previously mentioned, I am trying to get promoted at work. I've applied for this position and have had the first round of interviews. I (im)patiently waited. And waited. Finally, my second interview was scheduled.
It was today at 3 PM. Oh wait, except it wasn't. It was today at 2 PM. I walked into the office of the person I was supposed to interview with (a VP) only to be informed that I was an hour (!!!!) late. Oh, I was mad. I get extremely anxious about interviews. I get an upset stomach and heart palpitations. I just have really high anxiety about those things. So when I was late (the VP didn't really care why), I kind of freaked out. Everything got all worked out and I was scheduled for 4:00.
I had to call my mom and ask her to keep Ryan a bit longer. Thankfully, she had canceled her plans for the evening and could keep him. I arranged to have Paul pick Ryan up. At 4:00, the Interviewer was still meeting with another candidate. His admin needed a quick minute (around 4:05) and then he got on a call. I was still waiting at 4:35. I wasn't sure how long I should wait. I'm glad he came out when he did.
Anyways, I am relieved to have the second interview over with. I believe it went well. Now, we wait some more. Hopefully they'll make a decision within the next week.
On one hand, I feel really good about my chances. On the other, I'm almost positive they won't pick me. I feel like I've done my best, though. I guess that's all I can do.
