The Question Club
GDI - so my job developer referred me to a career center, and when I went to the career center,t hey were basically like "whoa, all we have is retail, you have a lot of good experience, let us call you if we have something" and as I was walking out, the lady yelled after me to come back. I came back and she noted that they had a position open with their agency that is actually 100% perfect for me. She asked me to look over the job description and tell her if I was interested. It fits me to a T! So she said they would call me early the next week because the woman who would be hiring for the position was out of the office.|
Well, my job developer calls me and says the lady I met with said that she had been expecting a phone call from me, and that she wanted to set up an interview. I explained to my job developer that I was waiting on THEM to call ME, since some places don't like to be bothered like that - they'll call me when they're ready. This was on Thursday. I immediately called and emailed the woman and have not received a response. I figured she would have all day Friday to respond and because it was a holiday yesterday, she may have been busy.
tl;dr: job I REALLY want said for me to call back to arrange an interview and it's been almost a week with no response.
ANYWAY, what should I do?
1) Keep calling and emailing? I think this would be a good idea except a) what if she's not getting my voicemails or emails for some reason? and b) I don't want to seem like I'm pestering her over and over again.
2) Talk to my job developer and have her call them? This really isn't her responsibility as much as it's mine, but she was actually corresponding with them, whereas I haven't gotten a single email!
3) Go to their office and say I was in the neighborhood for a doctor's appointment and I just wanted to follow up.
I really need this job! If not for the fact that it's perfect for me, I can help change people's lives, and the money to pay rent, but for the sake of getting out of the house!
