"We should know by the end of the week!"

Over the past few weeks I have come to hate, HATE, this phrase and people have told me that only the devil has the power to hate.

This phrase has been uttered multiple times by employers that I interview with. Am I the only one that gets this reaction from people interviewing for a job? Or, maybe it is just I am so badly qualified for the position they are just letting me feel better for a split second before making my world come crashing down again? Possibly, it could be that they actually haven't made a decision and really do need some time. I would hope that the positive side in me (the side that no one sees) would like to believe the third option. It has come to my attention recently, though, that this phrase is is only uttered here in Utah and to me so I think that the third option isn't the route I will be taking.

My friend in the northwest has told me when they interview someone, the person coming in will meet with three people and each interview will last about 20 minutes. So for one hour, the company will get an idea of the personality, experience, and overall status that the person wanting the job has to offer. At the end of the day the team meets and decides on who they want to hire. That is really simple and I guess the concept is one that is hard to grasp.

It's a waste of time to wait isn't it? Don't they need to fill these positions ASAP? That's why they posted the job listing. Taking the time slows the process for them meeting deadlines and it makes me stress out more and possibly cry myself to sleep on my over-sized pillow.

So, with these two interviews I have just had, I will let you all know by the end of the week if I have a job.
