Seeking advice on chasing up on an email. Mid-June I had applied for a vacancy with a fashion company based in Germany. I didn't hear anything for a while so I contacted the recruiting email address first week of July to ask what was going on. They replied 11 days later saying my application "passed the HR- reselection and is now together with few others in the subject department. Good luck, you will hear from us soon." It's been almost a month, and so far nothing! Any advice on what to do?
