A referral doesn’t guarantee you anything except a real human looking at your resume. Even a phone call isn’t promised. It’s possible that your resume was sent to the hiring team and they just haven’t gotten around to reviewing it yet.

You said that you got a referral, but did you apply for the job? Sorry for the maybe awkward question, but I already saw cases that people thought that referral already meant that it had applied for the role.

Had another AD help my CW on a brief while I was on PTO for a couple of days, and is now refusing to get off the project and letting me do my job.

It's starting to really impact the output and dynamics. What do I do?
