I don't mean to complain, but how is it that one can struggle through months of silence during a job search only to have a flood of interest within a few days or weeks?
The good news is that I finally got an "official offer" via phone for a postdoc position that interviewed for several months ago.
The funny part is that I got the offer the day after I got nervous enough to hedge my bets and start applying to other places (academic postdocs and industry). I honestly wonder if my office was bugged or if they planted a tracking cookie on my computer.
To make it even more comical, I also got an unsolicited heads-up on an academic position that will be opening up at a very good Institution by a contact of mine, who wants to recruit me to work with him. Needless to say, I will push past my odd feelings about the situation (most likely stemming from self-doubt) and pursue that option. Add to that a few industry phone interviews and my ego is reeling from too much stroking.
But then again, these are not bad "problems" to have and I am very excited about the prospect of having decent health insurance again....
