Some people don’t like it, but I prefer email for follow ups on jobs I am really interested in. Sometimes if you  call it puts people on the spot. I like a short email basically saying

“Thank you for giving me the opportunity to interview with (insert name of company). I am writing to follow up on the status of my application. I feel I would be a great fit here. If a position should become available please keep me in mind.”

Then add your contact info, thank them again, hope for the best!

CALL (or email)!!!!! RIGHT NOW!!! You should have been following up every 2 weeks just to let the person know you are still interested in the position and you look forward to hearing their decision. There is 0 downside to following up every few weeks, it shows diligence and follow-through.

For my current position, I interviewed 3 times last May and then they had a downturn and a hiring freeze. I still continued to check in every 2-3 weeks, and 4 months later, they lifted the freeze and hired me. My Director said if I hadn’t followed-up, she would have assume I had moved on and they would have begun interviewing new applicants.

It took my husband 5 MONTHS to get in with his current job. He interviewed in March, he started a few weeks ago. Companies are taking their time in a major way. With all their financial cutbacks they want to make 10000% sure their investment in a candidate is worth it.
