I have applied to a big pharmaceutical company for about 2 weeks and I have heard no word back on an interview or not. Should I call them?

You can reach out to HR to find out the status of the interview.

Nah, they are usually slow tbh

You log into the application tracking system and see if it was looked at - it usually shows where it is in their process.

I’ve been applying to numerous pharma roles for months. They usually take 3-4 weeks for a rejection. I’ve only gotten rejections. Don’t contact them. They have a very structured hiring process and will let you know if they are interested or not. I’d apply to others.

Sometimes they don’t even respond if one is rejected. But you can track the application , if possible !!

Always call, get your name heard so that when they see your application they remember who’s actually persistent and interested

It can't hurt to follow up.

Usually it’s better that you reach out to the hr and try to get a date from them it’s more efficient else it’s going to be endless queuing and waiting line

I would call them. Never hurts to reach out. I have always thought it shows initiative as well.

Would you freelance or accept an offer at Meta?

I've been very happily freelancing now for some months as a software and data engineer and architect. I get a lot of offers and I'm currently working for 950 € / day.
I just got contacted by Meta saying they're interested in my profile so I'm contemplating whether to go through the lengthy interview process.
I like freelancing because of the unlimited freedom but I feel that I'm quite close to the limit of how much I can charge per day.
Thoughts?
