Any advice on when to contact HR for a position I interviewed for almost 2 weeks ago? If they’re not contacting me they’re not interested, still interviewing or haven’t yet made a decision...

Have you reached out since the interview? Did you send thank you emails. I think it’s fair to follow up to see if they have any questions or if you have any questions.

Could be all of the above. It’s most likely they’re not interested. They could have had other people they asked to come in after you so they could also still be interviewing. From my one experience, the last place I worked at that I sent my resume to in July and started in November was a miserable place. If they haven’t decided and this isn’t a dream agency, run. Keep interviewing elsewhere, because not yet making a decision can be a big red flag.

@OP at least they were finally courteous to give you a status update, even if it were in a templates form. Keep on moving forward. I don’t know your situation, but it took me nine months to move from one not-so-good job to a better one. I can’t begin to count the hours I spent hunting, networking, applying, and interviewing. I’ve been in similar situations too where I didn’t get a job. Later on, an AgencySpy article would confirm to me I didn’t need to be there at that particular time (loss of client, layoffs, poor management, etc). Everything will pay off when you land the right gig.
