Interviewed with a firm three weeks ago. Reached out to see where they were in the hiring process and the managing partner just emailed me back asking to set up a ten minute phone call tomorrow. What could this be about? Offer? Thanks but no thanks??

Hi everyone, I’m looking for some post-interview advice. I had an interview last week that went really well. I emailed a thank you to the partners who were in my interview along with writing samples per their request, to which the managing partner responded, “let’s touch base Monday.” I didn’t hear back yesterday and am wondering whether it’s appropriate for me to follow up and if so, how do I word it? Or do I continue to wait? I want to show interest but not come off too aggressive. Many TIA!

Just need a quick moment to vent! Two weeks ago, I applied for an associate position at a family law firm. I received a response almost immediately from the managing partner, who asked if I was available for a preliminary Zoom interview the very next day.
