I heard from them on Friday.
She said that the team is still very interested in me. That there are two BA roles open and I am definitely up for one of them.
She also said that the 2VP I had interviewed with had just started the Monday before my Wednesday interviews. She told the talent acquisition rep that she needs three weeks to settle in to her new position, get acclimated, get things structured how she wants before offering someone a position.
I can understand that.
This could mean one of two things.
It could mean that she really just needs three weeks. It could mean that within the next three weeks I will get an offer. That she trust the opinion of the 2VP she is taking over for (the woman who originally recruited me). It could mean that she really did like me and want to hire me.
It could also mean that she wants to pick her own team. That she doesn't want to take the person the person who had the position prior to her had recruited. It could mean that this is the beginning of them taking back the verbal offer.
I was told that it will be three weeks before I hear anything.
Originally I wasn't going to post anything about this interview process. I was going to stay completely silent about the trip in the first place. I didn't want to go through the embarrassment of having another verbal offer taken back.
But then I remembered a letter a reader sent me. She said that she held her breath with every post (from last summer) and prayed and prayed that something would come through.
I started looking at it from a different angle. No one is mocking me or going to condemn me if they pull the offer back. All I will gain is prayerful support. And I feel it. And I appreciate it.
I have stayed in contact with the other VP from Insurance Co. B. She said she would love to get me in there and she is working on somethings to get me in, but it could take awhile.
All is not lost. Its just acting out the patience that I have been taught to have over the past few years. It's not a race, its life and we need to enjoy the process taking in all we can while we ride through life.
Thanks again for your love and support. I'll update as I hear :-)
