So I'm a new grad and I had my first interview with a hospital for a med/tele unit. Interview went really well, and there was even a point were one of the interviewers told me I nailed a question. I precepted and volunteer on the unit next to the unit I interviewed for (the managers work closely together). After the interview I was feeling pretty confident.
2 weeks after the interview I followed up with the manager. Her words were that "you're definitely high up on the list, but I'm waiting to hear back from recruitment on how many I can hire." She then told me that I could expect to hear back by the end of the week. The end of the week came and still didn't hear anything. Four weeks post interview I've heard nothing.
At this point I would assume that I didn't get it and that they must of selected other candidates. However, I have friends who have went through the same interview process and they've said that if you don't get it, you receive a rejection email. If you get it you receive and offer email.
What are your guys's thoughts? Has anyone waited longer than a month after an interview to hear back?
