I got to the final round of interviews for a role I'm excited for, even interviewing with my "would-be" client. The hiring manager told me they were hoping to make a decision by end of last week. Didn't hear anything. I followed up with the headhunter on Monday to see if he had any updates- he replied super enthusiastically that "we are so close. Please stick with me! Working with the team to see what can be done today". Which sounded really 👍🏼 That was Mon & I haven't heard anything. Thoughts? 👇🏻
