So I interviewed with an agency pre pandemic but of course rona put everything on hold. They really liked me according to an inside source. I want to keep top of mind for them and keep checking in but don’t want to seem desperate or annoying. Should I message them once a month or is that even too often? Halp.

I did this!!

I just dropped them a message saying I hope they're staying safe blah blah and that despite everything I'm very much interested in the role if they are in a position to progress?"

3 months later, I start next week.

You got this.

It's hard to say without knowing all the details but generally speaking I would say your inside sources are your best bet. Can you lean on them to find out when the wheels start turning on the role again?

There's nothing wrong with checking in every few weeks, but really you want to do so once you know the role is back.

Honestly, I’d just move on if I were you. I was in a similar situation, but found work elsewhere.

I was in the same boat, I had even worked with the ECD running the business before. I was about to get an offer and then everything hit. Ive checked in everyone month or so and now the tone has completely changed. After 3 months, I can’t help but give up.

Get your source to nudge first and report back.
