When to give up and when to follow up after an interview
I had a job interview last Thursday (about 7 days ago now.) My interviews started on Wednesday with a short phone interview before I was asked to come in for a short-notice in-person interview the next day. I met two interviewers on Thursday. On Friday, I sent a personalized thank you email to all three of my interviewers to thank them for their time and reiterate my interest in the position. I really felt like the interviews went well, and I feel like I would be an excellent fit for the position I was interviewing for. In my thank you email, I asked one of my interviewers when they were planning to make a hiring decision. It has now been 6 days later, and I have not received a response from any of my interviewers and I'm becoming increasingly anxious about the whole ordeal. Since I have not received a response yet, is it likely that I should give up on this opportunity and cut my losses or should I reach out to follow up again?
How do I answer this prescreen question?
I am currently 20 weeks pregnant, and job hunting. I've gotten an email from a recruiting company for a position in an industry that I'm extremely excited about. The email has prescreen questions, and asks "Do you have any vacations or other work absences planned?" How do I answer that without tipping my hand that I'm pregnant. I'm applying for a male dominated field, and even though discrimination against pregnancy is illegal, we all know it happens.
A "thank you" after my Thank-you e-mail post interview - Is this is a good omen?
Hi, So this time I decided to send a thank you after what I believe was a successful interview on my part. I think I was at my best. Reason I normally do not send them is because it is rarely customary in the country in Europe where I currently reside. In most industries you do not send them. However I applied to a global recruitment firm so I figured better to send one than not as there are a lot of people with different backgrounds involved in the process. Now they replied just one day after the interview and basically said "thank you for coming and for your contribution, we will get back to you shortly". So is this is a positive or a negative signal that they replied so fast? Could I even have made a bad presumptuous impression when I sent one? Do note that it was a group interview as well as a individual interview, and we also had assessments. Any advice or experience shared would be so appreciated! Kindly, Celia
Recommendation needed please ~ Resume writing
I am ready to take my career to the next level and feel that it would be a good investment for me to have someone assist me with rewriting my resume. Does anyone have any reputable companies I could work with? Thank you in advance!
What's the best way to explain a stress-related gap in employment during an interview?
3 months ago, I decided to leave my high stress sales job before having another one lined up. I left because the stress was leading me into a deep depression, which made it difficult for me to do my job or get through the day without feeling sad or overwhelmed about the smallest inconveniences at work or home. I took this time off to focus on school, re-evaluate my career goals and improve my emotional state. Now that I have had a chance to decompress, I have started applying for new jobs, but haven't made any traction. The only thing more worrisome than the fact I haven't received any call backs is my anxiety over having to respond to the reason for leaving my former job. How should I explain my reason for leaving a company before having a new job without sounding negative or raising red flags about my "emotional weakness?"
