Please, I need your advice, or perhaps just kind words to keep me going for now.
I applied for a teaching fellowship position in May, I did not hear back from them. However about a week ago, I was contacted by a course leader who stated that my CV was passed on to her and that I seem very qualified for the post -- and wonders if I am still looking for a job? She concluded by asking if I was available for an interview and that she cannot guarantee a job as she had invited other people for an interview.
I had the interview on Friday -- it lasted for less than 15 minutes (basic questions were asked which was answered to the best of my abilities). I am supposed to get feedback by tomorrow, but I can not help but torture myself about my chances of getting the job.
Has anyone had similar experience and was given the job?
Thank you for your kind words.
No similar experience but I'm crossing my fingers for you! I also have an interview for a teaching position next week scheduled to be only 30 mins long, so I guess this is the norm. Let us know whether you get it or not!
I have not heard anything about the interview, so I have decided to count my losses and move on.
Greater things are yet to come.
Have you thought of contacting them to find out for certain and also to ask for some feedback? Could be handy for the next interview if there is some good (critical or otherwise) feedback. Just an idea to help you keep momentum in the job hunt.
