job anxiety

so I'm leaving my current job and on the search for another one. I had an interview the other day for a job and I really really want it 😥 to the point I'm making myself ill thinking about it. the guy said he would expect to have come to a decision tomorrow and did say he'd let me know...I just can't help but think the worst. I can't sleep at night. I know deep down the interview went well but I'm not used to interviews I've never had one I've just been lucky with work in the past so I don't know what's a good interview and what's a bad one. if he calls me to say I haven't got it is dunno how I'll cope with that feeling

  • I don't know much about job interviews since I'm just a teenager.

    It's good that you are really wanting this new job. However don't make yourself ill over the fact you may or may not get it. If you knew the interview went good then don't worry yourself :) Also if you don't get it then are many other jobs out there. Of course it's not what you want but there is always something else.

    I'm sure it was a good interview, meaning you have a good chance of getting the job :)

  • thanks. I do keep thinking 'if I don't get this there'll be plenty more' but then I go straight back to the but I want it feeling haha hopefully I'll get a good sleep tonight and he'll call tomorrow

  • Good luck :)

  • I firmly think things happen for a reason if you don't get the job it will be horrible for you but it's not the end There will be other job opportunities you have got through the interview and you will again You'll be fine its good experience I wish you loads of luck and happiness but don't beat yourself up if you don't get it Pick yourself up tell yourself it's their loss and go for another one All the best x

  • just looking through these old messages and thought I needed to say something haha you were right everything does happen for a reason. I interviewed at the same company last week for a better position and I start tomorrow 😊

  • I'm so pleased for you I hope you will be really happy in your new job

    It was so lovely to hear the outcome from you thank you for letting me know

    Ooh can I be really smug and say a big I TOLD YOU SO 😁😁😁

    I look back on things that have happened to me and at the time they were rotten but it was all meant to be and happier things came along

    All the very best would love an update sometime

    😍 x

  • so I haven't heard anything and my anxiety is really bad still so I braved it and rang today and he's going to call me back tomorrow. I'm worried about what he's going to say. I don't know how job offers work

  • I'm not sure either. If they said they'll ring tomorrow then you might find out then :) I wouldn't worry yourself.

  • 2sara1, calling him back was a smart move. It showed you are truly interested in the job which at least will put you in the running. Good Luck, let us know how you make out. x

  • oh thank you for saying that!! I called then I was like crap what if he thinks I'm pestering!! so you think it was a good idea to do that? ah fingers crossed. I shall let everyone know as soon as he calls thank you!

  • so I've still heard nothing. he didn't even call me back so I'm taking the hint and just leaving it now. job hunting is really making me anxious and getting me down 😕 how can you have such a good interview just to be cast aside..surely he should give me some feedback on why he hasn't hired me? not just ignore my calls
