Worst of all, I had to wait all weekend to get this news. The guy tried to call me on Friday afternoon and left me a message to call him back, which I tried to do several times in the past three days, but it turns out that he’d gone away for the weekend. It was not a great feeling to spend a holiday weekend in anticipation of finding out my status. I really wish that he would have just left me the bad word on that message instead of having me wonder where I stand for so long. I guess it isn’t BCG’s style to leave those sorts of messages, but I think it’s better to just let someone know what’s up as soon as possible.
Damn, I’m really starting to wonder if I’m really meant to be doing Consulting at all. I’m still waiting to hear from McKinsey at some point today, but I’m not very optimistic about what I’ll get from them either. Maybe I should have just dropped my resume for high tech jobs since that’s what I know instead of trying to jump into a new industry that I don’t seem to be best equipped to get into.
