The Worst Part is Waiting January 14, 2009

The Wall Street Journal has an interesting new blog entitled Laid Off And Looking.  In the most recent post, Kevin Hudson discusses the difficulty of waiting for a response during job hunting.  I have to agree that  it is the worst part.  Even a negative response is better than none.

I think this is a component of the job search that is especially hard for recent graduates to deal with.  As a student, one gets used to decisions.  Schools accept or deny your admission.  They may wait-list you, but that gives you infinitely more information than a non-responsive employer.  Personally I deal with this by using a send and forget strategy.  I send out resumes under the assumption I won’t hear anything back.
