Good news - a company I'm interviewing with wants to move forward to the last round of interviews and asked for my availabilities for next week. (Potential) bad news - I'm going to be out of the country for a little bit (10 days) in a couple of days.
They asked about any vacation plans that are upcoming during the initial stage, so I revealed it pretty early in the process. I told them I'd be more than happy to take an unpaid leave or push back the start date if I were to receive an offer before I leave. Obviously that hasn't happened and now it seems like I'll have to interview when I get back.
Is it safe to assume that the company will continue to interview others and possibly extend an offer to one of the candidates before I come back? The interviews went well and the company seems to be understanding that I have "prior obligations". I will add that the conversation between me and the company has been mainly positive.
I obviously don't want to be mulling over this issue while on vacation but I know it'll eat away at me at least one of the days. Has anyone gone through this issue at all and what was the end result?
