Should I call the company or should I hold tight

Thursday, April 17, 2014

Q : I recently had a second interview followed by a phone call asking for my reference telephone numbers and following that there was an intention to come back to me with a financial offer. It has been 3 days since my referee received the phone call. Should I call the company or should I hold tight and wait for them to contact me? - Marie

 

A: Three days is not a long time. It is totally understandable that you are eager to hear from the company, but I would wait. They have made a commitment to get back to you. If they have contacted your referee they are continuing with the process. There are probably other internal procedures they have to follow before contacting you again and that can take longer than three days.
