Hi! I had an interview for a job with the DOL that I applied for on usajobs. The interview was exactly 3 weeks ago today and they have called my references. I haven’t heard any updates and I know it can be a very slow process but do you think I should reach out to the interviewer via email to follow up or no? Thanks!

I would. I believe that keeping that open communication not only allows you to know your status but also keeps you relevant in that person’s mind.

There’s definitely no problem with reaching out, but I wouldn’t do it repeatedly. It took a full month from when I interviewed to my offer, and it can absolutely take longer than that. So don’t stress too much on it. And bear in mind the interviewer likely can’t say much. Still, no problem checking in.

Yes no harm in reaching out. I worked for DOL for 13 years. They did not call references unless you were a candidate for the job.

Ive worked for DOL in the past and its not uncommon for the hiring process to take a while. By a while i mean a couple of months between interview and start. 1-2 months. I would def recommend following up if you dont hear from them at the 4-6 week mark after youve imterviewed. It takes a while for them to have candidates approved and onboarded. Their processes are pretty slow.

Yes, reach out for sure
