I made it to the second round of a freelance job but when I let the recruiter know that the interview went well and to keep me posted on any next steps she never got back to me. I emailed her twice after that and still no response but she has been active on LinkedIn. Should I just assume I don’t have the job?

Sorry to hear, I know how frustrating that can be. I would suggest moving on and not spending more time thinking about it, if they get back to you, great - if they don't, it's whatever. Just try to focus on the next thing to keep up your momentum.

She never responded to me and then sent an automated email for the same job posting looking for designers so I responded to that to saying I never even heard from you and I’ve interviewed with them twice I guess this is not a good sign right

How long ago was that? If you were interviewed recently, maybe the company is interviewing other candidates and they don’t have feedback yet. They should reply anyways, but when that happens I try to think they must just be busy, or must have no information to share yet.

They are doing a poor job and that’s affecting your case, so I would move forward.

Don't count on her .. I think you should apply to other place.. It seems they are not intrested

Was just wondering this today. Just did a third interview last week and haven’t heard back yet but from what I read online give them 7-10 days. Before this, they were pretty quick to respond and move the process along. I was going to reach out today but one of your comments reminded me that it is Easter weekend so I should probably follow up on Monday.

I would wait because when I emailed recruiters today I got a lot of out of office email responses.

I frequently tell people that to truly appreciate Grand Seiko you really need to see it in person.
