The position I interviewed for

The interview was a couple of weeks ago.  They said they'd be willing to wait for me if I'm selected for the position.  I've heard nothing.  At the same time, I was referred to the selection official for another similar position, supporting the Deputy Commander for Nursing.  They weren't willing to wait for that position, and I've already received the notice that someone else was selected.  Nothing to do now but wait, and continue to apply for others.
