My wife has been at her current job for 6 months but is fed up. She’s applied to a few places but this one in particular seems ideal. Good commute, great benefits including part time work from home, and would double her pay!

She did a mock call and phone interview and it was sent to the manager for review. They told my wife they would “definitely” get back to her after a week. It’s been two weeks now, but she told me she doesn't want to be "annoying" and #followup yet.

What should she do, if anything? Your #advice is greatly appreciated!! #jobsearch #interview

You should have called back by end of week. Definitely call. It might not be too late. Keep looking in the meantime.Best of luck. I found my employer through Indeed.com. Once I sent out my resume, I received many interviews and job offers. My current employer was through Indeed.com. Best of luck!!

2 weeks is way too long to wait. My suggestion as a recruiter is that you reach out 3-7 days after an interview for feedback. Best of luck in your job search!

Send them an inquiry letting them know you are updating the status of your prospects. Doing it this way gives the appearance of being professional and efficient.

I'd have already reached out in 1 week MAX unless they said it would be a certain number of days before I would hear back. After that day I would call if possible. They might be looking for the go getters that go above and beyond and show the most interest and readiness to begin.

Just call the hiring manager and ask him or her for the status of her job application. The worst they could say is no, Sorry. But it would he useful and courteous if they sent her a simple email regarding the status of her application or of their decision. If this is any indication of how they treat their employees then perhaps your wife may want to rethink if she wants to work there or not. I'm running into the same problem....lots of jobs, no response.
