Are Two Follow-ups, Too Many?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
So I did a second interview for a position on April 18th. It went very well and the individual said that he would get back to me no matter the decision. I hadn't heard anything and sent a follow-up/thank you email on May 5th. He immediately replied back, said he appreciated the sentiment and said that the position has kind of taken a back seat because they were major sponsors of a big event in town and he would get in touch with me as soon as the event finished which was May 13th.

Well it has been two weeks and I haven't heard anything from them yet and as far as I know the position is still open.

Do I send another email or just wait?

Since a significant amount of time has passed since the event, I would say a gentle nudge as a reminder would be fine.

Curious - what kind of a position was it?

I shouldn't say primarily... It is probably 50/50 b2b and b2c

They probably don't have great interest in you and are seeing if someone else is out there. That being said, they don't hate you or he would have gotten back I assume. I'd send another email just in case. It can't hurt.

Yep, that is basically what is happening. They are still taking applications, but they have only interviewed a couple people after almost two months.

It's an ad agency, so I don't see why you shouldn't be promoting yourself repeatedly (but politely) to them. I've seen small companies (and large ones) take a long time to hire... priorities often shift. I personally know my resume is tacked to the wall in a manager's office at a global company, for a local role, and they'll call me every few months to let me know they're still working on the position...
