If they don’t respond, on Monday EOD withdraw your candidacy. These people are assholes and you deserve better.

ty! they ended up responding, confirmed i’m still being considered but they’re still interviewing other candidates and have scheduled an “assignment review” with a previous interviewer next week. not necessarily good news, but at least it’s the respect and acknowledgment i wanted

and what i didn’t include originally was that post-assignment, i was scheduled to speak with a global c suite exec. meeting was cancelled with FIVE MINUTES NOTICE and was meant to be rescheduled, but never was. super frustrated, feel i deserve more respect + feedback, but want to withdraw my candidacy if they can’t give me that.

Reach out to the hiring manager CC the recruiter. Just say “I’ve been interviewing for quite some time with your company and I’m excited about the opportunity. I do have a few other irons in the fire. I’d love to get feedback and know when you expect to make a decision. Please let me know if I can expect something by Monday of next week. I really appreciate any insight you may have so that I can make some decisions on my end. Thanks.”

How’s it go?!?

I’m currently in an academic and administrative role at a mid sized university. My background is in counseling, and between these two, and the other stuff I’ve gotten involved in, I’ve developed skills in: DEI work and research, assessment building, data analysis, and strategic planning among others. How do I communicate this to potential employers, esp in other industries, and get over the academia to industry hurdle?

im not confident in the accuracy of my work.
