@D1 - I sent a thank you email the day of the interview which was last week

Had a second round interview, in person with an MD and it went really well. He said that he can’t make promises because it is still early and they are interviewing other candidates, but I was top of the list and things looked good for me unless another candidate with incredible qualifications came through the door. They said they would have a decision by first week of July. I went on LinkedIn yesterday and saw the job was reposted. It could be an auto-post because the company is pretty big, but it’s killing me to know if I am out of the running. Can I follow up this week? I want to stay on the top of their mind if I am still being considered, otherwise I want to know if I am not.

Send a direct thank you to the people who interviewed you. Keeps you top of mind without coming off as desperate. Hand written thank you notes are always a plus

Also should mention this is not a consulting job, and I would be a non-traditional hire, which is why they might be holding out for someone with better qualifications . I got the interview from networking and showing a history of passion and interest in the subject.

Which company did you interview at?

I have a brief resume gap from near the beginning of covid but have been at a new employer for >1 year. I’ve been asked about said gap during in-house interviews, but it’s generally been cursory and I give the explanation agreed upon by former employer. Was pressed a bit harder recently by being asked “will x former employer confirm [the story]?” Is this in and of itself a bad sign? Are they trying to catch a lie?

Hey there! I work in a mid-size full service agency with a growing marketing team.

Any advice on how to prepare for that kind of role without changing agencies? Or anyone open to mentoring me? I'd love to learn from a CD or ACD to see what they're doing and what I can bring without leaving my team!
