Is this a red flag? - I interviewed for a financial analyst role with a company -

Had several rounds of interviews back in May, all signs pointed to that they all loved my resume and personality and I made a great impression. I was told that the role was on hold due to “beaucracy” but the hiring manager from the role has kept in touch. He then reached out to me yesterday asking if I’m still interested and want to move forward..no offer letter, just gauging my interest.

What would be your take?

Not a huge red flag. I’d move forward and make a decision once you’re presented with offer. If you get the offer, ask them what is their plan for retaining you if the market turns, do they have the budget to keep you. You can always turn down the offer if you don’t feel good about the opportunity.

To me, it's so hard to find creativity with legal writing. I try to get some side projects on the side to satisfy my creativity need, but it's not cutting it. Anyone else feel this way?
