Waiting is pretty much one of the most useless and painful things in life. As well as such a waste of time.
September 14th, 2011 is when I sent my application to my dream company. And I haven't heard anything. I sent the application to somebody in the press department not human ressources, because I wasn't applying or a specific position.
I decided to get in contact with the company one more time: Telling them I understand they are very busy in the coming 10 weeks, but I would like to know if my application is attractive for them. Because relocation from Germany to the US would have to be planed carefully and takes time.
And you know what? Still no answer. Nothing. No we-have-received-your-application-and-will-get-back-to-soon or sorry-we-don't-want-you. NOTHING. Like waiting at home next to the phone and waiting for a text from that guy.
Isn't this what a company wants from an employee? Having the right kind of training, knowledge and dedication and be a fan of this company? Isn't a short e-mail with 2-3 lines the least I can expect?
Call it kindness, courtesy, good manners or simply the right thing to do.
I'm not doing too well with this.
I'm sad. Heartbroken really. I know it's still early. But time is running through my fingers. It is October already. I had plans for February. Saying good bye to these plans or postponing them is hurtful. You are somebody elses game ball and you have to wait for the other one to make a move. Action and reaction.
Action was my part, reaction theirs.
If I don't get an answer I will have to make new plans. I will pick myself up, dust off, get very angry, when the anger is gone, I will be sad and I will find new plans.
Life goes on and yet I don't want to let go.
But still, this means so very much to me. I will keep you posted.
