I spent most of today being anxious over the scheduling of an interview. The main problem was that there wasn’t specific enough conversation far enough in advance. Everything is resolved now, but the lesson I learned from the experience is that when responsible people are very busy, sometimes they don’t get back to you. That’s okay; we’re all inclined to do it. But when you don’t hear back in a timely fashion from someone you expect to, make a follow-up call. Doing that a week ago would have saved me all the subdued anxiety I felt today.
