Hey all. I recently had an interview for employment for a company that
I really want to work at. The interview was on Wednesday of last week
(April 8). After the interview, which I thought went really well, they
gave me the common line "we have a few other candidates to interview."
There is a fine line between being assertive, calling and asking about
the position and being a pain in the tush. Is there a standard that one
should wait (a week or so?) before calling a company and asking if the
position was filled? Any comments or advice?
