Interviewed for a SM role at Accenture. Situational and with 2 other SMs for a smallish group. Last SM said to “expect a package next”. It’s been a week and nothing. Not even sure I would want the position, so hesitating reaching out, but I assume they’re interviewing others (or I’m being ghosted). Normal? It was a bit of a bizarre experience, which is another reason for my hesitation.
