My teacher friend is flipping out because she is trying to transfer. She had an interview and has not heard back in over a week. Is this normal? For transfer interviews? She thinks she should have gotten the job at the end if the interview.

Right, and she can always send a follow up email just saying thank you for the opportunity to interview and that she’s inquiring about the availability of the position. And if they don’t respond to that then just take that as a sign that’s not the place for her.

Yes, good point; I've occasionally done that for jobs I'm really interested in.

Here in NJ, I'm afraid that usually means you didn't get the job. My experience has been that the interviewers will generally say they'll get back to you either way in a certain time frame, but they only do if they want you for the job--if they don't, you get a rejection letter in the mail a few months later.

First off, what makes your friend think she should have been offered the job at the end of the interview? You cannot assume that she is a fit for that school or place! Second, your friend lacks patience, and this is a great humbling experience for them and those around them. But, delay does mean denial, coz there coud be other candidates yet to be interviewed or were better suited than your friend. WAIT and see

We have to put in a transfer request by February. If not, you are still interviewing with at least 2 other people because you have to interview 3 candidates total. So it may be possible they are waiting to finish their interviews or waiting to hear if person #1 will accept job offer. She may be choice #2 at this point.

In my experience it has meant I did not get the position. About half of my interviews I received an email telling me I did not get the position. Some I did not hear from at all. I always sent up a follow up thank you and asked for feedback. Some responded because I did that.
