Patience Is Hard!

Well I guess it is easy when you have no choice, but then again I am really eager to know. I had an interview yesterday that I think went well. The interviewers said they were hoping to make offers next week but it is hard to wait. Here are some things I believe are highlights. When I spoke of the activities I'm doing with creating an online broadcast the person in charge of the region commented they couldn't do that. It was said with an honest tone of being impressed. When I first introduced myself I made sure to share a copy of my book as I had mentioned I was a published author and wanted them to know that It was true. Their response was very positive and encouraging. Throughout the interview they asked questions that I was very quick and thorough to answer pulling in the activities of the past 2 years in particular. Each time they were taking voracious notes and smiling as they did so. Part of the job is doing presentations and trainings which allowed them to see the many things I've done over the years. As the interview ended one of the interviewers said something very quietly about how I would probably be contacted next week (I take that with a grain of salt as I was not supposed to hear it). Oddly this job would amount to me doing much of what I've done over my career with a focus on where my strengths are. What do you make of an interview where you seem ready to hit the ground running and the interviewers seem to be on the same page as the person being interviewed? Keep praying for a positive outcome from this interview please.

I'd be more hopeful rather than less to have heard that, makes it more likely true

@Jessicalynnt I hope he gets it. Been telling him not to get too discouraged if he doesn't. I think I'll be more depressed if he doesn't. Cause then I can't quit my awful job. Once again, did the work of two people today and even my newer co-worker was not happy about that.

Going by how you describe the events and things that happened, it looks all very positive. Prayers and wishes that you get the job - I know, getting into one is important - as it keeps you busy and also a chance to meet new people. Being at home for past so many years, I realize that there are times when this becomes important. Fingers crossed
