Then in each contact after that, do the same thing. We spoke for quite a while, and she was honest enough to say that though she was ok with me, but she wasnt the only one taking the decision, and people had a problem with my job hops, and me being 3 years experienced, starting all over, meaning my juniors being my bosses, could make me feel bad 6 months down the line, and I could quit. Tamika3434 in Brooklyn, Maryland said: Is it really that awful to call the interviewer after a couple days if you havent heard anything back yet? Please let us know what happens. I was thanked my for my continued interest and told that the agency would be back in contact with me. Employers almost always need more time to fill a job than they believe they will. Does anyone think this is legit or was that a diversion which gave them a chance to decide on me in the next room or something? As a hiring manager, completely agree with these points — especially the last paragraph.
So, I am really confused. The rejection email came an embarrassing two days later. Is this a good or bad sign? After the recruiter qualified me, I had come in for an interview. I did not hear anything back the next week so I sent an email inquiring. And I was told the are considering me. Even when companies state a specific date, things can get in the way and delays happen.
I think the interview went great and that they liked me a lot. They looked down at their questions almost the entire interview. No company is going to tell you that you didn't get the job over the phone. I had the exact thing in mind what you suggested. Thanks again for your time. In a big like New York people are a dime a dozen. Lynn, Sounds like you had a great interview.
Sometimes it takes months before you hear from the employer -- not often, but sometimes. Accepting a new job and giving notice at your current employer is truly a leap of faith. I was told during the interview that they were interviewing for two positions, but the interviews for the second position were not completed. When should I follow up about the status of the vacancies? They ask stupid questions and judge you on that. Don't act like a servant or slave.
You never know what's going to happen. I know these big organization can do whatever they want…. His reaction to seeing the message was along the lines of: Fuck! She said that they would be making a decision by the end of the week, and that calls would be made by Friday. I really dont know how to convince her now. This would be the second in person.
When they do not tell you much about the job, the starting date, etc. This inteview setting happen to me and I didn't get the job. He asked the employee if she had any? Should I make another phone call, or should I just sit back and wait? Since he told me why I wasn't being chosen at this time, I believed him on this. I decided she would be my interview test dummy. She had actually offered to look up with a couple of her friends about possible openings in other companies. So I still suggest, in most cases, less is more. .
When they ask illegal questions for example: How many kids do you have? The right people need to approve new hires, often in very specific order up the organization's management chain, and decisions wait until the appropriate approval is received so the paperwork can passed on up to the next level. Anything under that seems bad to me unless they specify it is a screening. Is the fact they did a reference check on me a good sign? Perhaps, send them a thank note for the opportunity to meet them and to learn more about the organization. There are just way too many possibilities here for you to be able to know which one is correct. Today I had the hiring manager on the phone, he told that he got my thank you letter and he really appreciate my follow up and my application is still under consideration. Or all sorts of other things too. How devastating for the Scottish teacher if he showed up to find out that he no longer had a job.
Their own deadline has passed — maybe days or weeks even months ago. I interviewed for a job 3 months ago. Or are in the process of negotiating the job offer with the person. I will be getting back in to touch with you soon! And, you may never hear from them. I am not sure of what to do further, if anyone can suggest a course of action, it would be much appreciated.
As I said in response to your other comments, please keep us posted! Although I wanted to help them, I couldn't because I was on the other side of the desk. My third interview was with the managing director. They could have offered the job to someone else and are waiting for that person to accept or not. He said he'd be in contact very soon. The interview went very well, the hiring manager told me my resume stood out above than the 10 he received. Good luck and stay sane! From the sound of it, it doesn't sound like that great of a job anyway. I had a final interview a couple Fridays ago that went really well.
That told me what to expect on a daily basis and I was relieved to get an email this morning that I didn't get the job. I found this very unusual. They also seemed annoyed with a few questions that I asked about the job. For those who could not afford college themselves, nor could their parents and went to work at age 16 anyway but born in the U. I think the recruitment agencies are just protecting themselves by avoiding the question or telling us not to contact the company. Lots of other things can get in the way of an offer: the hiring manager being suddenly fired, budgets being cut, etc. When it is finally time to make an offer - They told you the interview process is complete — all drug tests, background checks, and everything else is done, and a decision will be made by last week or even last month.
