I'm not 100% clear on what you're trying to do, but here's some info:

If your job is actually forking off a script, your job has to handle
waiting for the script, and there's nothing Condor can do to help.

If you can separate your script from the actual Condor job, though, you
could create a single-node DAG and run your script as the PRE script

Hopefully that helps...
