Patience Grasshoppa! smile

All shall be well (what will be, will be).

As you progress along the Path of Life, chances are that Patience will become your Primary Weapon.

Take my tip ... get outside for a walk, jogging, skateboarding (whatever) and forget about it all for while.

As the great Louis Pasteur* was heard to mumble:- "Luck favours the prepared mind"!

* I think it was him, anyway.

Would love to, but got too much going on in the lab. In general I'm normally quite a patient person, but when waiting for a job reply, my mind just starts to play games with me smile I'll be fine come 5pm as I know I won't hear back after that time (same on weekends). Will probably go for a run tonight though.

Nice one! smile

Maybe we need to set up a poll about how many biomeds are also joggers.

For me it's always be a good way of letting off a little steam after what may have been a somewhat stressful day.

And yes (before someone pounces on me) I am aware that there are other ways of "relaxing".

Mmmmm interesting. Tried contacting the person who interviewed my and not getting any response (no one picking up phone), so I contacted the recruitment officer and they replied saying they haven't got the results of the interview yet. Wouldn't of thought it would take this long to get this far as there were only 7 other people being interviewed...

Oh well.

Patience indeed.

As the one who does the hire and fire 'round these parts I can tell you that it can take quite a few weeks, especially if you have a system that requires various levels of checks and approvals before an offer can be made. The other thing to keep in mind is that, although this may be the thought uppermost in your mind at present, the people making the call may have a lot of other "greater" priorities to deal with.

Still, I do feel for you, the waiting is the worst bit ninja

I was unsuccessful with the post. Just thought I'd let you know since I did get a lot of useful information from yourselves. I'll ring up a week or two for feedback, but not going to rush it. Never mind, I'm sure something else will come up soon smile

Sorry to hear that, Matey. frown

But no doubt you will have learned a lot from the exercise, so you will be that much stronger next time around.
