I had a final round of interview yesterday. At the end of the interview, the interviewer said ' let's stay in touch'. A bad sign, right? Should I give up the hope?

Neutral sign. As an interviewer, you're just trying to find a way to close the interview without giving a sign either way.

Agreed. I might not talk to the person getting interviewed when they actually get hired! It’s not directly for my project. It’s just a way to sign off...”great talking with you...” etc

I don’t think so. I’m guessing there’s going to a debrief and then you’ll hear more no? Could of just been a friendly comment

Totally could have been they think you’re cool and want a reach out on LinkedIn. May be good, may be bad.

What was the job for?

No I think it’s neutral. I always feel frazzled when they say “let’s stay in touch” and I’ve had it go both ways.

Need advice: have been interviewing for a strat role. Did a case in late December. Someone left the team in new year so they have to reevaluate their org structure. Recruiter and director keep reaching out to confirm interest and just spoke to director. They won’t have an answer for 2-3 weeks now but still like me. Job is still open on LinkedIn. Are they going to hire me or not?
