How long should I wait between followups? Had a really good interview and sent my thank yous, but it’s been about a week.

Did you get any indication of how long the process would take at the end of the interview? If not, I’d give it at least 10 business days before you follow up again.

I had a great lesson in patience today. Was annoyed all week that a recruiter had no sense of urgency to hear how my interview went, and he even ghosted me when we were supposed to have a call to discuss. I emailed again and found out that he hadn’t even followed up with the hiring manager, and was told that he’d find out more “sometime next week”, and not just about me but every other candidate he sent the agency. It was a good reminder that no matter how important it feels for us, it’s one of a million other things recruiters and hiring managers have on their minds. And if you’re dealing with a recruiter, they operate like salespeople; always scouting new business. We’re all just numbers.

Not really. I know they’re hiring now, but I never got a hard date. And I know they’re all super busy. Thanks for the reminder 😊

If you’re supposed to have a call then even if plans change they should update you on the change. Common courtesy.

If you truly have no sense of how often, here is a sample cadence:
1 full week after interview
2 weeks after 1st follow-up
2 weeks after 2nd follow-up
Abandon effort / not worth further if no response

Hello! I’m a PharmD with 6+ years experience in a clinical setting (hospital) and have been trying to break into the industry realm for about a year and a half now.

I’ve had maybe 4-5 interviews and the feedback I’ve gotten is they decided on someone with experience or someone internal (recently ghosted by a company after a panel interview as well). Just wondering if it’s worth it to continue trying.

10 open Leadership Supervisor positions.
Almost 30 applicants.

I said that "People come to me about process issues, and I worked with others to better that process for them and the team."
Interviewer feedback denying me the role was that because I did not say "People trust me and came to me about process issues. Which led me to collaborate with others that I have networked with in the past to find solutions." I did not get the job.

Was this Code-Switching nitpick?
