I interviewed at the beginning of Jan at a large corporation with the hiring manager (first round) for the role. He told me that was the last round (no panel interview or 2nd round) and that he would make a decision by end of Jan.

I reached out to the HR recruiter last week asking for an update and didnt hear back. But I did hear back today from the hiring manager who just put time on my calendar
