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.

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.

Need advice.
I recently completed all the rounds for an interview with socgen for consultant role.
The HR received all documents and no response for a month.
When I reached out says the position is on hold.
Has anyone faced the same it socgen. Will there be any possibility of getting the offer after its put on hold.
Kindly suggest.

What shall I do now? I am currently under the Notice Period.
