World of Finance: Interviewing for a job
Now once you have sent out your resumes, the waiting game begins. Sometimes you are lucky enough and you get a call for an interview and sometimes you don’t and you have to wait for a long time and even have to call yourself to find out the status about your resume. But if nobody is calling you for a long time, it just means that you have not been selected for even an interview. Another thing is that don’t just send one resume and wait for the call, you should keep on sending out resumes since you don’t want to waste your time waiting for a call which may never come and you lose out on other opportunities. Waiting for an interview call is a very patient game and if you don’t receive a call within a reasonable time (maybe five to seven business days, sometimes more if it is a popular company ) you can either call the company to inquire about your resume status or you can just move on to your next target company. Don’t be disappointed if you don’t hear from your targeted company since there can be several reasons for this, none of which they will tell you since they are afraid that they may end up violating some law. I am gone through this process and believe me it is frustrating but there is nothing you can do about it. They can say that you will hear from them in due time and if not selected, your resume will stay in their system for one year and if some suitable job arises that matches your skills you will be called but it rarely happens.
