Need an advise from HR perspective...

I had an interview 2 day ago for a position that I really like and want, in which I forgot to ask, when will the company be making their decision. My question: is it ok/proper to contact my interviewer (head of HR) and ask that question? And if yes, then was is the better method of contacting, email or telephone call. Thanks in advance.

If they are interested in you, it doesn't matter. I have never reached out to accompany after an interview. 85% of the time that I got a personal interview, I got a job offer. Personally, I value my time. I would not have taken the time to interview for the position if I wasn't interested. The people who are interviewing you are all on the clock.

If they want you, you will hear from them.

They asked for references .... definitely a 'buying signal' Good luck and hope you get the job

Contact the interviewer by sending a thank you letter/email for the first interview and your interest in the position. Ask when they might be making their decision?

I typically recommend a thank you email about two or three days after an interview. You could work that question into an email of that sort.

In my opinion it is a good idea, to call with confidence and enthusiasm to ask this question. Keep it brief. 'I am so and so that interviewed with you on such and such a date, and while I respect that you are a very busy person I wish to know when I may expect a decision from you? " They provide time frame. You ask " If I do not here from you in X number of days, may I contact you again. ? And which method of contact do you prefer Mr. Or Mrs. Y23, phone, text, or email? Thank you so much for accepting my call. I am very interested in working for you in X position. Have a great day.." Goodbye. This is an example of how I would handle the call. Insist on speaking with the HR person but be courteous about it. You need to speak directly to the HR person who makes the hire decisions. You do not have to explain more to the receptionist fielding the call than I wish to speak to Me or Mr Y23 in regards to the interview I had with him or her.. Accept leaving a message for the hiring HR person to call you back at a convenient time if you must. Above all be courteous. The receptionist may be asked her opinion of you. Good luck with getting hired.

Since you forgot to ask, I would wait one week and then follow-up with a phone call. If you don't reach the HR person by phone, then immediately follow-up with an e-mail.
