How long should you wait?

Our dear job gurus Dale Dauten and JT O’Donnell were contacted by someone who made the final cut in a job competition, then was told the trip to headquarters was “pushed back.” He or she wondered what to do.

Dauten said are you going to be the person sitting around waiting or the one who presses ahead with other options?

JT said maybe they were busy—but to call and see where things stood.

Dauten added: The guiding principle of job searchers should be DON’T WAIT.

I would add also—DON’T STALK. But everyone these days seems a little slow on tagging up. Even if you don’t want to hear the answer, ask the question.
