I went to the hospital yesterday to do my normal thing and I found out that there was a THIRD person being interviewed for the aide position.
What I don't understand is why if the head person asks me if I want the job TWICE in front of people why they are even interviewing anyone else? I know my downfall is my availability in July but damn. I am not sure how HR works but I am guessing you have to interview more than one person for a job to make it "fair" I guess. Not really sure how that works. But this 3rd person is external! I be damned if I lose this opportunity to someone who doesn't even work in the hospital!
According to the current aide, the head person said in the staff meeting that it is me, another internal person (which must actually work in another dept in the hospital cuz nobody at the clinic knew them and they know the pt community), and this external person up for the position. This is BS! Two of the therapists who are on the hiring committee was shocked they had another interview to give! The external person has their interview on Wednesday, so that means I won't be getting notice until the later part of next week, if then.
I am losing my confidence and security in this position and I don't like it. Regardless if I get this position or not, I have to start an internship in August to graduate, so leaving my current job will happen very soon. Plans B,C, and D are in place so I don't have to worry too much, but damn! I will not be a happy camper if the hospital picks someone else! I mean I could have been already working at the other clinic, but I didn't jump on it because I liked the hospital better.
*sigh* I don't understand and I don't know how I feel about all this....
