Ask A Legal Recruiter

How long is too long? I interviewed with a mid size firm in mid September, and haven't heard the results yet. Got a courtsey email for first two weeks stating they will come back by next week. But now they're completely silent. I've the partners number, but have been refraining from making a phone call. Is it alright for me to give him a call or send a text. Or should I just move on.

Absolutely call or e-mail to check in. What have you got to lose?

It’s been a month, they’ve either moved on or you should due to the lack of courtesy.

I’ve seen firms come back later, but rarely. If they’re excited they tend to be more in touch - but there are exceptions to everything. I’ll just say that if that’s the consideration you’re getting now, some version of the same is likely to manifest again. Inconsiderate, disorganized, lacking transparency and communication. Depends how interested you are I guess.

I had a final round last Thursday, and the hiring manager mentioned the next step will be reference checks. I have another offer due end of this week, which I told them about during the interview. Is it appropriate to follow up with the hiring manager today/tomorrow for an expedited decision, or should I give them at least a week for the final decision?

Hopefully my job search process will end soon and I will have a position where I can focus on doing the work... rather then looking for it. Have a great weekend...
