    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. 

    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.
