Over a month after my first interview, I received an email asking me to go back for a second interview… from the company with an office in the UK.
I’m trying to tell myself that I did the right thing by taking the local job instead of holding out hope for this other company, but it’s hard. Moving to the UK was such a concrete thing when I had a job. Now that I was forced to re-evaluate the timetable and all the other things, I’m questioning EVERYTHING.
I know it’s not healthy.
I know I’m fine at my new job.
I know I like it there.
I know I’ll be just fine there.
I know I’m being stupid.
But that doesn’t make it any easier.
(And seriously? Who waits for over a MONTH before they decide on the second round of interviews? It makes me feel like I wasn’t anywhere their top choices.)
