      Project Manager

      I interviewed with a company (2 interviews of 1h each) more than 15 days ago. In the company's portal my application shows as "in progress" and I haven't heard back from anyone (HR or interviewers). Is this normal?



      When sending a post interview follow up email to a hiring manager, is it appropriate to address the manager by first name, or is it more appropriate to use Mr. or Ms. X (assuming they have not invited you to address them informally and that their gender identity is clear)

      How do i phrase it on an interview why I'm leaving my current employer after only 4mos due to not being comfortable with the company ethics on how they handle some things? The only reason I am mentioning my current employer on my resume is I want to apply for the same position at a competitor I know is more ethical (confirmed by employees). I don't have much background in this position so I feel putting it down is important when I normally would not for positions held for less than 6 months.
