I interviewed for an Agile PM/Scrum Master role that required a TS/SCI with Booz Allen Hamilton and both interviewers said they would love to have me on their team. The last interviewer (Project Lead) was certain that his Hiring Manager would get back to me within 48 hours. It’s been 5 days. Does anyone from BAH know how long it took before HR reached out? Is it too soon to email HR regarding my status? I know it hasn’t been a long wait, but I’m getting a little anxious.
