I applied to an in-house job on Wednesday (5/26) with an internal referral. Haven’t heard anything yet. How long should they take to get back to me if they’re interested? A week feels long, but maybe in-house moves slower? Am I wrong to assume they’ll give me some kind of reply because I was referred?

4 months for me

This week or next. Sometimes client side moves slower but someone submitted me last week and I heard back yesterday. Through internal referral as well. Good luck!

It was MDW, give it some time. A week is not long in-house when the recruiter is likely working on a ton of roles. Many companies will do atleast one interview with referrals

Client side moves too slowly and there’s too many rounds / tasks. This is the issue, you have to be in a stable role day to day to maintain the patience and positivity

The stronger the brand for in house roles the slower it takes in my experience.

Worked on both sides - one in-house gig (via referral) did move at a glacial pace. Recruiters weren’t very marketing savvy - so felt they took longer than usual. But nothing wrong with weekly follow-up. Even better if the referral will help.

While you would think that an internal referral would get human decency in the hiring process that's not always the case. You may never hear back from them. I'd keep feelers out with other places in the meantime.

A week is nothing, especially given the Holiday weekend.
