In the year 2019, what is the proper time to wait for a decision to an interview you just had? If you are told during the Interview a decision will be made by end of week, should one assume that if you don't hear anything back by end of week, that you have not been selected for the position? I usually send a thank you for the Interview email within 24 hours of having my Interview. What is the proper time to wait to email regarding the status... see more

So my interview went well. But for the first time ever. I was told to call her in a week. She didn’t say she or they would be in touch. She said for me to call her directly. Is that good or bad?

Its bad. If they wanted you you would know. Theyre stringing you along because they might pick you if nothing... see more

Once you've clicked send and your application has been submitted don't forget your next step which is to follow up! Here are some tips to help.

When do I do it?
If you were given an email to contact the recruiter/hiring manager, send a follow-up email 2-3 days after you originally applied. It's likely that they haven’t gotten back to you by then, so this is a fantastic way to remind them of who you are and why you are a benefit to them.

Friday evening they called and said they were extremely impressed with me and would be sending me an offer. I asked if it would be Monday and they said yes probably Monday. It is now midday Tuesday and not a word. This is a small company and I don't have any email addresses but i do have cell phone #'s. Today... see more

I've been contacted by so many recruiters only for them to disappear on me. Either on the phone, in person, or video they tell me what a wonderful resume I have, they think they can help, blah, blah, blah, then I don't hear squat. It makes so angry that recruiters put you through all of this then leave you hanging. I'm unemployed. I'm not going through this process for fun. I need a job so why they heck are you contacting me and wasting my time... see more

I have probably applied at one company for various jobs over the course of a couple of years and just when I really need a job, I have an interview with them on Monday. But darn I had to search everything to find out when I applied there and have not found the job description yet. Fun Monday.

I've submitted to over 200 jobs, most don't even call me and the ones that do tell me I'm over qualified. Should I remove my masters degree from my resume and my experience that shows I am highly qualified?

I think it is worth experimenting to see what happens. Your resume should always be tailored to tell your best... see more
