I've applied for a local job, nothing flash but it sounds great and would fit in with my life perfectly.
Closing date for applications was 22 April. I received a personal email (not a robot) acknowledging receipt and that they'd get back to me soon.
Interview day was stated as this Thursday (12 May). I haven't heard anything either way.
What's the etiquette? Do I just have to wait it out? I've kept the day clear (but if interview were to be at school run time I would have to make arrangements for kids, not that it's their problem!)
Am I allowed to send polite, short email and if so, which day should I send?
It's a very small job which has not been widely advertised and for which I can't believe there's many applicants and I'd find it hard to believe they simply won't send anything if they don't want me for interview. But maybe that is the case?
