I had a job interview (and a follow-up meeting to meet some people at the company) early last week. At the time, they told me that they were planning on making decision by the end of the week (so last Friday). If I didn’t hear on Friday, I could expect to hear Monday, and I would be contacted either way.
Well, it’s Tuesday afternnoon and nothing yet. I really like this job, so I don’t want to screw it up by being pushy. When is it okay to send an e-mail to see if they’ve made a decision? Would tomorrow around lunchtime be too early>?
I’d appreciate any advice!

I would hold off. Tomorrow maybe contact them. A lot of things at work don’t happen as fast as the people doign the planning think they will.

I would hold off as well. And definitely do not call. If it gets to be a week, send a polite e-mail, stating your interest in the job, and that you are looking forward to hearing from them. Keep it short, polite, and concise.

i would send an e-mail tomorrow morning and just thank them for the interview and politely ask if they have made a decision yet. good luck!

A brief, polite follow-up email would be okay. Just restate your interest in the position, indicate that you’re following up, and thank them for their time. 🙂

I would send a short email tomorrow. Use it as a thank you letter and follow up in one. As much as you don’t want to seem pushy, you also don’t want to wait to long and miss out. A short, prompt email will show that you are interested and have good follow up skills.

I think three days is a little short, especially if they are interviewing a lot of candidates. Some places manage to squeeze in all the candidates in one day; some place take at least a week to meet with everyone they’re interested in. I would give it a week.

I would not contact yet. I’d wait until Thursday or next Monday( sorry but I would think I don’t want bad news on Friday if there was to be bad news). You also don’t know if something happened at the company where a new hire had to take a backseat for a few days.

If they said you should hear by Friday with yesterday being the latest, I think it would be fine to send a short follow-up email tomorrow.

@LadyBear: People can be notoriously slow about such things. Perhaps email the interviewer withsomething like -“It was so nice to meet you. I wanted to let you know that I am very interested in the position. Please feel free to contact me with any follow up questions, I can be reached at (phone) or (email).”
Just to remind them that you’re interested and expecting to hear from them.
