    One of my Comms Ops applications has been “In reivew” for the past couple weeks. The recruiter I emailed said that my resume had been forwarded to the HR Manager and the manager would call me if an interview was elected.

    I feel like there is something I should be doing during this time. Any suggestions? Haven’t seen anything about HireRight come through from them yet.



    Hurry up and wait is the name of the game unfortunately. I’ve had a help desk job listed as In Review since March, and last year had jobs listed as In Review from July to August/September.

    Since I can’t stand it anymore I’ve taken to calling the HR contractor that first emailed me about my resume submission every couple weeks, if only to remind her that I’m still ready to deploy and hopefully somehow help my resume make it to the top of the pile. I’m just trying to balance that and make sure I’m not calling too much and becoming annoying.


    Use this “limbo” time to do some self-reflection. Take some time and think about things like what you have done for previous employers to add value to their organizations. Think about how you resolve conflicts and think about examples of how you’ve done that in the past. Think about all of the things that you will bring to this position and…well, why you want this position in the first place. Think about your attitude about safety. Think of examples you can give of how you’ve contributed to your own community.

    Once your mind goes numb from that, go watch “badger, badger, mushroom” again. That thing NEVER gets old!


    My primary application sat in received from early march to late april. Got the hireright stuff and did that and now I’m still just sitting in the in review state.
    Something may come up, we’ll just have to wait and see. Meanwhile at least I’m getting good use of my Brooks Brothers pants and keeping the local dry cleaner in business while I pay the bills.
    Getting the interview down and figuring out answers to questions will go a long way. Plan out what you might say and it will come out much much better.


    Think about what you’re going to do afterward.
