I’ve had radio silence from a small investment bank for about a week now. I’ve completed several rounds of interviews, but last Thursday the firm reposted the job I’ve been interviewing for. On Friday the headhunter said that they’re not sourcing new candidates and it’s probably just LinkedIn automatically refreshing the listing. She said they had a busy week last week but will make a final decision this week - is the delay and radio silence a bad sign or is this typical for experienced hiring?

My assumption is that if the LinkedIn posting is to source new candidates then they would’ve dinged me on Friday but I’ve never done anything other than campus recruiting before

A week isn’t an unreasonable time to not hear anything. I’d give it a week and a half or two weeks and then follow up

I’m going on three months of “we’ll have an answer for you next week we swear!” So I feel like you’re good

Considering it took JPM near 3 months to offer me my job, I’d say a week is nothing lol. Be patient.

Also, since it is an LLC could I then expense my home office and utilities as business expenses? Thanks in advance and would love to hear any thoughts/tips.
