About the Job offer

I do have the General Manager e-mail address. So, you suggest I e-mail since I have called and left a message on her voicemail? When should e-mail her? Thank you for the advise.

I have a determine and aggressive personality when I am trying to accomplish a goal. Sometimes it can count against me; so I learn to pace on job follow ups.

I know what you mean. There is a fine line between showing your interest and being a pest. I think the follow-up email tomorrow makes sense as well.

I think it really depends on the type of job you are going after as to how you follow-up. I am not as familiar with your field, so I do not want to steer you in the wrong direction. It is ok to go after what you want and let it be known that you want it, but you do not want to come across as desperate or drive them crazy. I think it can be good to mix it up, and since you called her on Monday, an email would be the way I would go. I would probably send it tomorrow if you do not hear anything, and just let her know that you realize she is busy and you left her a voice message on Monday, but also wanted to follow-up with email. Not sure I am telling you the right thing, but this is what I do, and it has always worked pretty well for me.
