Hi! I am in the process of applying for a job (which I DESPERATELY NEED). The thing is, I sent the application in early last month and received an email saying that they have received my application and that if I am among one of the final candidates, I will be contacted for an interview (I'm paraphrasing). The email sounded to me like they're saying that if I don't hear back from them, don't bother contacting them since it would just mean that I'm not one of the final candidates.
Anyway, the application deadline for this job was last Friday (11/19). It is now Wednesday evening (Japan time) and I have not heard back from them. How long do you think it normally takes for the hiring manager to select those "final candidates" for an interview? I am thinking that it really shouldn't take this long and the fact that it's been a few days since application deadline, it probably means that I'm not one of those "final candidates" sad What do you guys think?
Also, do you think I should email them back to find out (since the first email kinda implied that I shouldn't)? What should I even say, exactly? Or do you think I should just move on?
This really sucks, though sad I really thought I might have a shot at this job, especially since my former boss (who wrote me a letter of recommendation) is a friend (and former co-worker) of this person. And one of my ex co-workers (with a more relevant degree, but less job experience) is actually working there! Anyway .... sad
Thanks in advance for any input/advice!
Dont e mail them!
Could be the person who is doing the sift is ill, needed urgently for an important issue at work or at home.
Sometimes time tables are set by admin who do not check with the short lister when they are going to be around.
In my experience the application is never dead- just try and forget it and look for other posts.
Not hearing from them can just mean they are busy!

Do you research candidates before voting? How could anyone vote for Romney or Obama?I wrote articles about a local Modesto mayoral election in 2012. Though I was on the first Google results page for the biggest search phrases on Google (and there weren't too many!), only a few dozen read the...

I follow a number of topics and hubbers on HP, and I get regular updates via email. I follow the topics I am interested in and the ones I wrote or will be writing about. Just a quick note on what I have found. Many of the article links to the hubs published on the topics I follow would redirect to...

I really need help and I don't want to discuss this with my friends. Two months ago, I met someone on-line, yeap, that's what I said. I wasn't looking, it just happened. We began to chat and discovered we have tons of things in common and really, really liked each other. I feel that I...

Everyday when I open my email, there are at least 15 new notifications for hubs published by people I'm a fan of. I want to do justice to their hubs by reading and commenting, but all this takes time. And there never seems to be enough! Do you also have the same dilemma?
