It’s very important to set expectations very early in the interview process. When talking to the Recruiter or your company contact, you should be asking what their hiring timeline looks like and if they have a sense of when they’d like someone to start. If you are looking to start a position right away and they aren’t going to be hiring for a few weeks or months, make sure to keep your options open. This will help give them a sense of what your timeline looks like as well. If you have several final round interviews, they may move quickly to get you through the process if they think you’re an All-star candidate.

What should I do when employers fall outside of the hiring timeline originally set after the interview? I interviewed with 2 companies that gave me a timeline of 2 weeks or less but I haven't heard back from any of them yet. I tried calling and emailing but no one has responded back to my follow-up inquiries. I don't want to be perceived as a desperate candidate. What should I do?

That is really great advice! Definitely something I think about but tend to forget to do, or just get too scared to ask about it.
