I really thought today was the day. The interviewing P from Tuesday emailed me yesterday telling me I was a finalist and he would let me know one way or the other after meeting with 2 more candidates today. I haven't heard a peep, and the job posting has disappeared. I had a really positive interview this morning. They had 2 more candidates to talk to, but asked which of my references were available today, as they were planning on moving quickly. I mentioned the three I thought would be easiest to get a hold of. By around 4pm I was climbing the walls, so called one of my references about another issue. He didn't say anything about being contacted, and I think he would have mentioned it. Some friends are taking me out to dinner, as my birthday was yesterday, but I'm not feeling much like celebrating. Sorry to be a whiner and thanks for listening!
