Early last September, I published an essay I had written for a job application. At the time I published it, I hadn’t received any response from the prestigious organization to which I had applied.
Four and a half months after I submitted my application and two and a half months after I started my current job, I received a rejection letter by email:
The last time I hired someone, it seemed to take a long time to find the right person. As I recall, we made an offer about two and a half months after the job opening was announced. In comparison, four and a half months seems unusually long. I’m glad I wasn’t waiting on this answer.
