  • It’s now May and you STILL haven’t heard anything. Don’t fret! Many candidates are in the same boat and are fixated on waiting by the phone (or computer) to hear a response. At least I was. The post-interview wait can be agonizing, especially if you feel like you did very well. Some of you may have heard back from employers, and that’s great! For those of you who still haven’t heard anything, we will discuss the reasons why that may be! View this previously recorded virtual session as a part of the NASPA Virtual Conference for Emerging Professionals from May 7th, 2020.
