A much milder version of this tactic would be, ďIs there anything else I can answer for you to make a hiring decision?Ē If you really arenít sure how well interview went and donít want to waste your time waiting for a call that may never come, you could simply ask, ďHave I done well enough to advance to next level of hiring process?Ē
This puts all cards on table and an employer who appreciates honesty and frankness will reciprocate by letting you know where you stand. If for some reason, you were not candidate employer was looking for this may give you a golden opportunity to clear up something that might make you ideal candidate. Otherwise, at very least, you wonít be spending next two weeks waiting by phone and you can begin concentrating on other employment prospects.
In event that employer does not offer you a firm commitment and seems to be a bit hesitant about when a firm decision will be made, donít take it as a personal affront. There could be any number of reasons why employer is reluctant to hire you on spot-the least of which could be need to consult with superiors. Itís important that even if you are disappointed about not receiving a job offer on spot that you remain positive, up beat and confident. Finally, take time to thank employer for meeting with you. Above all, remember to always be professional no matter what happens.
