I'm a Lumberjack.
Guess I'm out of touch and I expect a follow up especially in a few cases where I asked specifically for references.They taught this in nursing school. I never received any though ...
On another note I interviewed someone and felt like it was going well .a good candidate. After the interview I was show the applicants lengthy criminal record .overall the interview process is flawed as the posts in this thread show. Many jobs are posted but earmarked or there is a political fix so maybe being yourself and not feeling constraints of norms or whatever is the way to go.
After college I had an interview that I thought was going well until I was Flummoxed by a question about how I deal with arguments with my roommate. Clearly felt I couldn't be honest. Didn't get that job.
