Hopefully they’re finalizing some details and just waiting for things to clear before contacting you! 

I was just in a situation that was kind of similar to yours. I applied for a transfer to a different district. The manager called me on a Monday and I wasn’t working that day and my partner told him I was working the next day. I waited all week for a call and nothing! I thought that I didn’t get the position because if it was important I would have received a call sooner. But on Friday my manager called me and said he approved the transfer, I still haven’t heard from the other manager yet. Things have been busy at the company so maybe that’s why the news was slow to reach me.

But give them a call if you can, this shows them that you have definite interest in the position. Good luck!

@DuckEBee:  I currently work for a very large corporation in the film/tv industry and, I kid you not, it took them 4 interviews and 2 months before I was hired. The HR department told me they would call me back with my offer and my contract about a week after my final interview. I did not hear anything back from them for another 6 weeks even with phone calls and emails. I finally called the VP in charge of the division and she was furious with how long bring my on was being dragged out.

Just remember if it is meant to be it will happen 🙂

@DuckEBee:  I just finished my MBA in Marketing in September and it is hard to find a solid job but yours will come soon enough. They may need to obtain certain approvals and get their ducks in a row before they can make anythng official.

Have you tried calling the recruiter? It may not be bad at this point to check in even if you have to leave them a voicemail.

Yeah call the recruiter. Ive learned with job hunting you need to not worry too much about being a pest.
