Post interview wait - what to do?

I applied for a role about one month ago and things progressed quickly. I’ve had three interviews and completed an assessment. At the last interview I was told that I am one of the finalists but there are other candidates and they’ll decide shortly who is moving on to meet the Managing Director.

It’s been one week since I last heard anything and more than a week since the last interview. We had a bit of email correspondence afterwards.

How much longer is it appropriate to wait before I send another email to follow up? Or do I just leave it now.

I'd wait until Friday

So email Friday before close of business? Or email on Monday?

Ugh it just all was going very quickly and smoothly so now I'm sure I haven't gotten it...

IME if they want you they won't leave you dangling too long. Sorry.

I’d get back to them now. You’ve invested a lot in this process and you deserve an update

Sending a thank-you note after an interview is good business etiquette. Some employers even expect to receive one. Surprisingly, only a small number of applicants send thank-you notes. Perhaps for this reason, many employers hire the people who send thank-you cards or letters to them.

Even if you are not sure whether you are interested in the position, make certain to follow up with a thank-you note. Leaving a good impression on your interviewers creates opportunities for future networking and other job prospects.

I went to my email to send a follow up and there was already a message from the line manager saying he hasn’t forgotten me but they’ve been delayed and will decide shortly. So not over yet!

Thanks itake I had already sent an initial thank you email the day afterwards.
