...in life? Actually its not that serious, but I was wondering, what time scale should be applied between the closing date of a post and hearing back about your application? This may already have been asked thousands of times before, and if so, I do apolgise, but I applied for a post with a closing date ten or so days ago, and I am wondering if it is about time to admit defeat. Saying that I don't think I have ever been so keen to get into work before, it definitely has helped my productivity in school over the past week as I can only get access to my work email at work, and I rush (amble) into work every day just now, hoping that I have an email. No luck so far though. Ten days enough? Or do I hang on to hope for another few days?
