As you’ve probably experienced, hiring managers, recruiters and HR do not always get back to you in a timely fashion.
One way to possibly bring the conversation back to life, indirectly, is to ask an off-topic question or send them an article of interest, specific to something you heard during the previous conversation.
“Thanks Chris for the interview last week, I enjoyed our discussion, you mentioned you like fishing as a hobby, I thought you might find this article interesting.”
“Thanks Chris for the interview last week, I enjoyed our discussion, you mentioned you like fishing as a hobby, I meant to ask you, which artificial worm do you find works best in the fall?”.
Last week, I was sent a resume to review and it fall off my radar, then a few days later, the individual sent me a question off topic, which indirectly reminded about their resume.
Versus an email saying – “Did you review my resume yet?”
It probably wasn’t intentional, but it worked.
An approach you might want to try, if the direct questioning isn’t getting you anywhere.
