The Waiting Period Can Be Agonizing at Times, but Keep At It

by Jason Nemoy

For those that are in transition, you WILL land interviews (phone and in-person). And we will all experience the waiting period after that initial interview. It might be a call back from the recruiter saying “not a fit”, or the message might be “Your next interview is in a week.” (ugh) It might even be an offer that takes what-feels-like forever to receive. The key here is to keep moving forward, and keep at it. Try not to dwell. What else are you doing to move the proverbial chains downfield? It might be tough, but compartmentalize and continue the focus, effort and energy to address your search. Especially during the waiting period. Be creative.

Rick began his career as a CPA in public/corporate accounting. He joined the recruiting industry in 1993 with The Mergis Group. He then went on to successfully lead the Accounting & Finance Practice for Stephen James Associates.
