I was able to land an interview for the hospital I volunteer. The first step was the phone interview and it went well. During the phone interview, the lady said that I would need to provide my social security number and some other paperwork for background check and other purposes.

Then came the day of my interview which went well for the most part. I stuttered some parts but recomposed myself later on and the manager noticed I was having a difficult time as well so he helped changed the topic. It was very conversational like and it also helped that the manager remembered me from the last time I went to his department during my volunteer hours. He gave me a specific date that he'd call. So the manager has a limp leg because of a muscle strain, and after the interview, he walked me out and said, "Maybe the next time we see each other, I won't have a limp leg anymore." And he smiled at me too.

(1st follow up) When the day came, he never called so I decided to call him the next day and asked him about the interview process. He said the interview went very well and they are still highly interested me. However, there are some complications going on their end with an employee that was planning on leaving. He said he'd call me the next week after that.

(2nd follow up) The next week came, but no call. I waited for the next day again and asked him for a follow up on the complication and he said he would try to solve it the day and would call me at 2pm. He says if he doesn't call me back, I could feel free to keep calling him and bug him about the job if I was still highly interested. He also asked me once again for the days I could work and for my phone number so he'd have it on and he doesn't have to go searching for it. So fast forward to 2 pm that same day, and no call from him.

(3rd follow up) Now the 2nd time I called him was during Christmas week, so I figured- okay things might be busy on their end and some people may be missing because of vacation and whatnot. Then 2 weeks later (first week of January), I called him but the phone went straight to his voicemail which of course I left him a voicemail.

I just have a good gut feeling about this job, and I asked my friends about this as well and they said they had a feeling I might get this job. A couple of the employees that I work with in my department at the hospital also said they think I might get the job as well. But sometimes, I just lose faith in myself because it's been a while now. I had the interview back in November and it's already January. And I checked the website where the job listing was posted, and it was removed. So now I'm afraid that someone else might've gotten the position and maybe I should've just called right after Christmas or right after New Years.....

I need your opinions.

Call him tomorrow. But keep looking for other employment. Are there any other jobs at that hospital that you would like?

Hey, thanks for the suggestion! I decided to call him today. I believe he may have gotten my voicemail on Wednesday since he said he's been carrying around my phone number all weekend but never got the chance to call me. He says he'll let me know after 11am tomorrow. If he doesn't call, then I can call or e-mail him.

You are following up too much! If they want to offer you the job, believe me, they will find you! I know it's nerve wracking, but you need to continue on with your search and not put all of your eggs in one basket.
