Sometimes the decision to staff someone is not entirely in that persons control. Budget, client feedback on skills, timing all are a factor. In other words, not everything is about you!!!

Eh, recruiters always say things are urgent, timelines can change and two weeks can easily turn into three or four.

And I haven’t heard anything back about next steps

Why don’t you follow up? PPMDs aren’t know for their great follow up. If you want to be on the engagement, I’d follow up and ask what kind of skill sets would benefit the team most.

It’s actually not for a project, it’s interviews with a different firm. It was my second round interview but I would follow up with the recruiter but they never answer my emails or questions

Liking someone vs thinking you’re comparable to others also applying are 2 different things. You can like 2 candidates but if you only had room to hire 1 then you’d have to choose.
