Exult in San Francisco, California

I applied to this company once before and interviewed with them. I didn't get the job. The experience was crushing and disappointing, but I did eventually get over it.

Now I've had another interview for the same position in another department. This is basically my dream job. The interview went splendidly, but it is a highly competitive field and no matter how excellent I came off, I am well aware that nothing is set in stone and that I can be greeted with yet another letter informing me that this company is declining my candidacy come Wednesday (that's when they said they'd get back to me).

Of course, I could get lucky. I could get the job. But I want that possibility to happen so much that I can scarcely think of it. I find myself engaging in extremely superstitious thinking, trying not to "jinx" myself in anyway.

Two days till I find out. I doubt that any one can offer me any consolation, or a way to mollifying the anxiety of waiting for a response, but it is good to vent.

Keep applying for other jobs...

Try not to get your hopes up. Stay neutral and try not to loose sleep. The worst is to get your hopes up and don't get the job.

Good advice. It's difficult not to overhype something like this, but I have to keep in mind that this job is not the end all and be all.

Tomorrow, apply for five more jobs.
