I’d wait a couple more days and then send a thank you note. It opens a door, let’s them still know you’re out there.

I would send them a quick email just saying something about how you wanted to touch base with them and see where things stand in the interview/hiring process.  I think it has been enough time since the last contact that it won’t seem annoying and it will show that you are still interested.

Yes, definitely contact them! When you’re waiting, it seems as though if a person doesn’t respond, they’re blowing you off. To the person who’s hiring, filling that job is probably 1 on a list of 10,000 things they have to do. Checking in every once and a while puts filling that job back on top of their to-do list, even if it’s just to respond with “nothing yet, will be in touch soon”. Wait for them to tell you “no”, don’t just assume it because you haven’t heard from them.

After I interviewed for my dream job, I contacted the Director every week for the first month, and every 2 weeks afterwards. They were going through some internal changes, so it took them a long time to approve the hire, but 4 months after my first interview, they offered me the job. If I would have given up after a few weeks, they probably would have figured I’d found something else and started looking for new candidates.

Keep in contact with them. My FI’s cousin is going through the same thing, and he finally called the place and they called him back in for an interview. If he had not called, it could have been months before they called him in for part 2. Interviewing people was not on the top of their list even though they had a position to fill and it was taking them a long time to get in touch with him. Send a thank you or just a quick email saying you were just checking in and let you know if they need anymore from you.

Good luck! I just went through something similar with a job prospect–three interviews and a written assessment were scheduled and done, and then, no word from them for two weeks. I checked in briefly, and they apologized for the delay. I waited another two weeks, and found that the HR director was on vacation. Finally yesterday (9 weeks after the initial interview) I was finally given a decision–I am not being hired. I’m bummed, but the HR director did seem to like me, and gave me a heads-up that another position will be posted in the next 10 days, and to contact him directly if I am interested. Keeping in touch will be a great networking move, even if the job doesn’t work out! I’ve got my fingers crossed for you!
