Wondering if anyone can share the approximate timeline after applying to Target Corp. to hearing something from them. Applied 9/1 and on the applicant portal the status still says “in progress.” I got a great internal referral, but I’ve not reached out to the hiring manager. 😬 I know there were a few hundred applicants — what’s a realistic timeline and what could I say to the hiring manager if I reach out to them. Many thanks.

I think that so that you don't keep waiting, you should contact the hiring manager directly, more than a month is a long waiting time, and more so for a company like Target that is always hiring staff. When communicating with the hiring manager, you can be totally honest and tell them that you have been waiting for a response from their company and that you would be excited to work for them, but in case there is no possibility, you would like to know to look for new options.

Hello, I think they did not take you into account for the recruitment round they did after 1 month, I think there is no possibility, but if you have not received an email saying that your process came to an end without hiring, I may have you present for Another round of hiring. You can still talk to the hiring manager, and be cordial and punctual. Luck.

Have you tried talking to the person I recommended to you first? I think that would be the first step. If the person I referred to you doesn't answer, try calling the hiring manager directly.

I wrote the hiring manager last week and haven’t heard back. The portal still says “in progress,” and the hiring manager did peep my LinkedIn profile… so maybe there’s a chance. (I’m currently on hiring committees at my employer and we haven’t moved on some postings that have applicants back as far as mid-August. Not that I recommend that or think it’s normal, just that it happens so maybe a few weeks still gives me a shot.)

Dear recruiters/hiring managers, a Project Manager is NOT an entry level position. If you want 3 years experience in the industry, it is NOT an entry level position.
Are you just skipping that detail and default to entry level? Why would that be overlooked? I have 7 years experience in project coordination and 3D production coordination: if the job is ‘entry level’ I figure they pay peanuts for someone who has a lot of responsibility on their shoulders. Am I too quick to write these off?
