I am so frustrated right now I don't know what to do next and it's really making me nervous. This might get kind of lengthy so I'll apologize in advance for that.
First of all, I'm a psychology major, and earning a bachelor's degree in psychology doesn't lead to very many open doors. But by sheer luck almost two years ago now I found an opportunity for an internship in the juvenile justice realm (juvenile probate to be exact), and just completed it earlier this month. I LOVED working there and was really sad to leave. The intern that was taking my place mentioned a job that she had found to apply for at a juvenile justice facility, and I jumped on applying for that one as quickly as possible. This was still June.
I was contacted later on in June that I would need to do some testing, and pass with a certain score in order to be considered for the job, which is fine. The test results wouldn't be mailed until 3 weeks later, which is okay with me. I did pass, and in turn was set up for an interview today.
So I had the interview, and by the end was informed that it would be ANOTHER 3 weeks before I would be contacted again. I don't know if this is the norm for jobs, but it feels like a really long time to wait! I've been putting my job searching on hold and working food service for now just because I don't want anything to interfere if I get it, but FI and I just moved into a new rental house and without a good paying job we're struggling a bit.
Maybe I'm just being impatient. Is it normal to have to wait 3 months for a response from ONE job? If I don't end up getting it in the end I will be so crushed.
Thanks for letting me vent in multiple paragraphs
ETA: I forgot to mention that I haven't actually graduated yet. I'm a senior. Which makes finding career-related job searches even more difficult.
