It's Not Fun Waiting

I am also anticipating the results and it's not fun waiting. For now, I'm still praying for favorable results for the Phils.
And...guys I'm also excited to see all of you and share stories and hear your experiences and see ALL YOUR PICTURES.I hope that we can all get together next week when I get back from my out of town trip.
Take care everyone and God bless!
Best Regards,
Ms. Arleene
She is one of the Toshiba-Philippines HR people who had helped us all throughout the whole Toshiba interview process. She's correct, it's not fun waiting, especially when it's a probable career that is on stake. Just like I had stated in my earlier posts, I enjoyed my interview and never got any negative hints from my interviewers/panel.

I've been back to the Philippines since Feb 28, and the results will come out the latest on March 9. That is about more than a week of torture on our part. On some days I've felt positive, while some other days I was a bit down. I'm being haunted by this whole Toshiba thing.

By tomorrow, I shall be at peace whether I get to be offered a job or not. The suspense is killing me. I may be hopeful but I'm not expecting an immediate offer either. Based on experience, it's better for me to expect for the worst to happen. Lately, I have tried distracting myself by attending to the interviews I had been invited to. Elma, Yugs, and I even planned to have some biking/skating session today, however it didn't push through because Elma had some homeworks to finish. I had to play tennis instead just to keep my spirits high.

I had recently joined the Toshiba Global yahoogroups set up by one guy from Singapore. Just this morning, I read a message coming from a member announcing that he had already been contacted by the Power Systems Company. This afternoon, about 5 more posted about their results... so far none yet from the Semiconductors company.

When people ask me when shall I know the results, I always say "on or before March 9". So yeah, they have already started announcing today, the 8th. So far, I have not been contacted yet. I'm not yet giving it up. Not till the official letter/email had been sent to me, or not until I have been called by any Toshiba personnel about the results.

Funny, I've set my stealth settings on my Toshiba ym friends to invisible status. I don't want to hear some news yet. I can't help but read 2 of my colleague's status messages. One read: moving on, while the other has a lengthier version: i'll keep on waiting...waiting on the world to change...

This just means that they also don't have any results yet, and are also waiting. And it hurts. Wena, who seemed to be a shoo-in for Toshiba, only has a blank status message so I don't know. I'm hoping that the Philippines still have no idea on who passed or not. haha.

The suspense is killing me. Tomorrow's going to kill me more.
