    Hi maam. My interview was done and at the moment they done asking me questions, the interviewer told me that she will endorse me first to the boss to where position i will fit. She will also endorse me to the two different departments if they have any vacant position for me. "We are in need of cost accountants and we are urgent hiring. We will call you. We have your number here in your resumè, just standby we will call you anytime because I will endorse first your application to the boss." she added.

    The problem now is, it's more than a three weeks since my interview and now I am still waiting and having anxiety that what if they will never call me anymore?

    Base on what she said to me after my interview, do I have to follow up or will I just keep waiting because she said I will standby for their call?

    Thank you for the feedback.

    It’s been over 2 weeks now.. isn’t too late too reach out and do the follow up? Because I know that job start next month. Do I still have any chance?

  12. Stephanie Marquardt says:

    I have a question. I found the hiring manager on linkedin but she had a post saying to just apply and that she is getting tons of emails via linkedin. I can't find a company email address. Should I still reach out via linkedin? Thank you.

  13. Nick says:

    i’ve had 3 interviews now where i’ve tried to act professional and interested and literally no calls back. minimum wage jobs are really giving me this much of a hassle

  14. Luis Gabriel Gómez says:

  15. Monique Williamson says:

    I just used this today and got a response back really quickly. She said she would send my application to the recruiter! Praying for an interview call soon! Thanks so much!

  16. CrazyFifaGamerZZ says:

    Wow, I've tried this and was on the phone with the recruiter in 2 minutes! Let's hope she invites me for an interview.

  17. Samantha Boadu says:

    If it says " Principals only. Recruiters, please don't contact this job poster." how to I reach-out?

  18. ty py says:

    I've never understood people telling me don't come off a desperate and why any job themselves would frown upon that energy its a job not a dating website and what employer wouldn't a determined person I don't really understand

  19. Gloria Benitez says:
