/ Asked by Shane
I interviewed for a job and the application status read "Invited for In Person Interview". It now says "Under Review". Is that a good sign? I have emailed the search committee and I have gotten no response. I followed up before the status was changed. Should I follow-up again?

Under Review" means that the recruiter and/or hiring manager is reviewing your resume. If you have not heard from the company within two weeks of applying, I would say it would be okay to follow up. If you receive no response, follow up again a week later. I hope this information helps!

Congratulations on the job interview! Each company has their own process in place for moving candidates through the interview/application process so there is no definite answer to this question. I personally think it is a good sign that your status still reads "Under Review" because this indicates a post interview status so the recruiter can track where candidates are in the process. More than likely, you are still being considered for the position. You want to be cautious not to follow-up with the recruiter too frequently though. If it has been 1-2 weeks since your last communication, I think it is acceptable to follow-up again. If you don't hear from the recruiter after your third attempt to reach out, I would not recommend reaching out again. Best of luck!

Every organization has their own internal process for how resumes are reviewed and when. I would give it at least 1-2 weeks before following up. If you followed up after a week or two, I would give it another 1-2 weeks and send an additional follow-up. If you still don't hear back after several weeks, I would encourage you to focus your time on other opportunities that could be a great fit. I know the "waiting" period can be stressful and a little uneasy, but keep up the persistence and hard work!
