                      I was promised a decision made by mid last week. I followed up on Thursday last week and got a response the update is now followed up with the hiring manager and their director and expect hear back by middle of next week. What should I be expecting if it’s delayed on promised update timeline from the hiring manager interview?

                      Marketing Manager

                      Someone tell me it’s not just me. Whenever i research a company for an interview, i get hit with dozens of ads for it on social media a day later and these ads follow me for weeks. Sometimes I got direct mail. I know it’s just their target marketing that can’t tell the difference but the reminder that I’ve been ghosted or rejected esp for a product I wouldn’t use otherwise is a tiny added thorn in the job search
