I interviewed with a company last week who quickly turned around and scheduled a 2nd interview last week as well. Then today they send me an email saying we are just starting the recruiting process and will get back to you if you are chosen to move forward. They seemed super interested in the first two interviews but now I feel like they threw the brakes on. Would you be super angry and frustrated or would you think you are still in the running?? #WTF #WTH #INTERVIEWPROCESS #JOBGAME #BS

A career mentor once ask me "what is the point of going through an interview, if you don’t get to ask questions of your own?". Her point of view was that sometimes asking the interviewer questions about:

  • Company culture
  • Team dynamics
  • Manager benchmarks

DURING the interview is the only time you’ll get the chance to know if you truly want the job before the job is offered to you, because you get to compare your expectations with reality. From there you can make a decision on whether you liked the environment described or not. Remember, it’s not just the company making a decision here, you are too.

Oftentimes, potential employers will ask candidates for references who can vouch for their abilities and personality. Having a solid reference (or references) can make a significant impact on an employer's decision to hire you!

Few months ago I applied for a job within a global company, the HR person for that position sent me an email few days later to set up an interview over the phone, interview went well, HR person asked me when I could go for an interview with the manager, I left it open to their discretion. But HR person never responded back, I sent a follow up email and it was just ignored. I have that person in my LinkedIn contacts and sees my messages, but not response, just ignoring. The job still open in many web pages. What may went wrong????

Your interviewer might have told you that they wanted to move quickly or even that the job was practically yours, but then you NEVER heard back. So, what’s going on??? Here are some common reasons for the delay.

The employer hasn’t finished the interview process yet. You might think that it’s a bad sign if the company is continuing to interview other candidates, but if often doesn’t mean anything at all. Most employers want to interview at least three to five people for any given slot, sometimes more.

Something came up and got in the way. We would all like to think that the hiring process always goes smoothly and quickly on the employer’s side, but this is not always the case. An employer could need to be out of town after your interview on business (or vacation), had a personal crisis, or perhaps is handling something at work that is more important than hiring new candidates. These delays can make the process seem to drag on.

They’re resolving issues with the job's position. Sometimes hiring needs can change or be thrown into question. The job’s description for example might have seemed perfect until the department head announced suddenly she’s resigning. Now that manager is spending time figuring out whether to combine that role with the one you interviewed for, reconfigure it altogether, or move things around. This is the kind of thing you can’t tell from the outside, but can often throw hiring timelines WAY off.

The employer offered the job to another candidate* and is waiting for an answer. This might seem like you’re out of the running, but candidates do turn down offers and if that happens, you might be next on the list. Sometimes there are multiple great candidates and only one slot. In the meantime continue to look for other opportunities.

They have hired another candidate and haven’t told you yet. This is incredibly rude, and sadly it’s also pretty common. You absolutely deserve a clear "yes" or "no" after you’ve taken the time to interview, but sometimes employers will simply NOT get back to you.

Be sure to follow up after your interview to keep the ball rolling by writing a thank you email, [here] (https://www.jobcase.com/conversations/3a2695c7-ced7-5bea-af4e-8789f758e97b?from=https%253A%252F%252Fwww.jobcase.com%252Fcommunity) are some tips.

Don't get discouraged! Instead take a few deep breaths, reach out to the employer, and ALWAYS continue looking in the meantime. Remember your search isn't over until your officially hired on paper. Keep seeking out additional opportunities [here] (https://www.jobcase.com/jobs/search).

Recently, during my current job search progress, I have seen a change in how interviews are being done. I am a traditional job seeker, having my first job interview in the late 80s. That was a face to face with a member of management staff and many interviews later have been the same way. Recently, the interviews I have had have been over the phone or, most recently, via Skype. Now, I have not been as successful as I would have liked and am wondering if the change in the environment has anything to do with it. I am looking to see what kind of experiences others have had. Thanks.

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.
