i interviewed for an entry level marketing position on Tuesday. It went very well, and I was there for 2 hours. Everyone seemed to think I would be a good fit for the position. I interviewed with the marketing manager, the sales and marketing director, and the president of The US branch. Today, I get this:
“Thank you for taking the time to come in, we all thoroughly enjoyed the time we spent with you!
Are you still available tomorrow afternoon from 2-5pm? If so, would you be able to stop in once more at 3pm?”
Should i just expect it to to be another interview? I already talked to everyone I would be working directly with, so I don’t know if they just want to ask me more questions. During the interview on Tuesday, I asked each person a few times if they had any questions or concerns with me in the position.
What do you think?

Sounds promising! Maybe there is some higher-up at the company who didn’t talk to you yet that wants the final approval before the proceed with the hire? It’s weird they’re not being direct with you about why they want you to come back in, but I wouldn’t stress too much.

This is not uncommon, and sounds like a ‘stamp of approval’ chat from a higher-up, as mentioned by PP. Good luck!

I work for a large corporation and second interviews are the standard for serious candidates. This is a good sign, and you are probably meeting again with who would be your boss as well as some new leadership. It is likely they have narrowed down the candidates, and you are competing with 1 or 2 different people. Be sure to memorize your resume and try and make people laugh or smile. At this point, they have likely determined that you are qualified, and are trying to determine now whether they like you and would be a good fit for the specific team of people you will be working with.

akm57 : Sounds good. A lot of people do first and final interviews and this is probably the last set before they pick the person.

I find it strange that they didn’t say this is a second interview! I guess I would just go in expecting that it is. Either way sounds promising.

akm57 : sounds like another interview. I am used to interviewing 2-3 times. When they like yiu, they ask you to come back.
