@mayflowerbride13:  I’d send another email asking about the meeting with HR. Something could have come up and she may have forgotten to set it up. It doesn’t hurt to check, and it shows that you are very interested in the job.

@mayflowerbride13:  If she said you would hear before now and you haven’t, then I don’t think it’s too pushy. I would just keep the email as brief as possible so that it doesn’t take up much of her time. When I was job hunting my dad (who used to be an admin who hired people) was always pushing me to follow up sooner and more often than I felt totally comfortable with. I figure if that’s the behavior he’d want to see from a potential hire than being a bit pushy isn’t a bad thing because it shows interest and investment in the position.

@mayflowerbride13:  I personally hate calling people (bit of a phone phobia), so I’d always go email as first choice, but you should do whatever is most comfortable for you. I also personally like email because I feel like people can answer an email when it’s convienent for them unlike answering the phone which seems a tad more pushy in my opinion.

I always find that even onces hired, the process takes way longer than they make it out to be.

 I bet you got the job but the HR lady or the woman who is hiring you are just behind. They definitely need to formally hire you, but I would bet are just taking a few days longer than they expected. I hope!

 I would email. I would feel the same way you would about being pushy but its not. Especially where she gave you a specific date and that date has passed. Goodluck!

Considering Fridays can be hectic and people sometimes leave early, I would wait until modnay.  Hard I know, but you can do it.  Definitely call!

If you get ahold of her, ask for HR’s number.  “Hey, I haven’t heard from HR yet to set up that meeting.  I’m sure you’re all busy over there, why else would you be hiring.  I’d be happy to call her and set up the meeting if you could just forward me her number.”  That’ll show initiative and remind her to either set up the damn meeting or tell you that she changed her mind.

I’d call, just in that if she has been called away, someone else will answer the phone and explain what’s happened. If you email, you’re unlikely to get a response before she’s back, if she is away. 

 

Interview tues, told you’d hear weds, it’s now friday, yeah, call, just be friendly and make sure you sound like you are not accusing anyone of anything!

@mayflowerbride13:  If you didn’t get it, and they didn’t have the courtesy to even tell you after all that was promised, you’re not missing out.
