Getting an Interview
Getting an Interview
- No OfferNegative ExperienceDifficult Interview
I applied through college or university. The process took a week – interviewed at Social Venture Partners International.
I saw that there was a job posting on an employment services website and thought it was something I was very capable of. It was a lot of work that I have done in previous positions: sending out internal email newsletters, being a part of team meetings, etc.
So I apply for the position and get a call about a week later. I was a little busy the day that I was called, so I decided to leave a voicemail after business hours the next day, as that was the only time I had available. I wanted to leave an impression that I was at least making some effort to get back to her and then call her back in the morning.
I call the lady back at 6:40 pm the day after she calls me...She picked up the phone, sounded absolutely exhausted, and said that I should call back tomorrow because she couldn't schedule me after hours.
So I call her back the next morning. She asked if I could come in the next Thursday, but I told her that wouldn't work because I have another part time job. She then tells me that she has to get back to me about what day would be suitable for another interview.
I never heard back from her.
I understand you may be busy, but isn't it standard protocol to have 3 days or so that people can choose from for interviews?
- Can I call you back after I find another day that will work? Answer Question
