if only. in actuality i never back heard from them at all. at the end of the interview i asked explicitly what the process would be like from that point forward, and flat out asked them to keep me informed of whatever decision they made, as i had other considerations as well. i made that point very professionally and clearly. they happily agreed and promised to do so. of course they didnt. so after giving them ample time after the thanksgiving holiday weekend and still not hearing back i sent a brief and courteous email asking for follow up regarding my application. the woman who headed the interview didnt even have the balls to email me back, despite the fact that i sent it directly to the email address she gave me, and i had been using to contact her through the process. instead i got some lamo-e HR person who replied to me. pathetic imo. lol thanks acid. i would again like to thank all of you guys for your kind uplifting words and encouragement. i really do appreciate it, and it is just the pick me up that i needed. youre a swell bunch of fellows.
