After too long a time not getting anywhere with my job search, I’ve suddenly gotten a lot (well, 3 + a second interview) of responses to my applications. This is super exciting, and I’ve been jumping around the house all morning after getting emails this morning asking me to come in for 1. an interview for a film organization that I would love to work for (a job that actually puts my degrees to use??? This is unprecedented!) 2. a second interview with Planned Parenthood!
The only problem is that both jobs wanted me to come in the same day and time. The film interview came in first so I scheduled with them. I told Planned Parenthood that I was very interested in the job, but had another interview already scheduled. I said I was free any other day that week, but I haven’t heard anything back from them about rescheduling. Now I’m getting nervous because I’ve had potential employers ghost on me before. If I don’t hear back by 4:00/5:00 today is it acceptable to send a follow up email? I worry it might make me seem impatient or demanding.
