People are still trying to figure out how to forward their phones. No one is hiring someone into this mess, and until more is known about how it will affect workflow. Chances are you aren’t getting hired right now but it isn’t a reflection of you and the same firm may hire you in a few weeks if things shake out well.

Since it’s been a week, I would suggest an email that acknowledges COVID-19 and float the idea of a Skype meeting. You would demonstrate an appreciation of the gravity of the moment and ingenuity to adapt.

A1 Good point - this person needs to consider their audience. Without knowing that, I think their best option is to follow up. Obviously, nothing is guaranteed.

I wouldn’t assume that- might be on pause though. It’s okay to ask. What practice group?
