I applied for a job about a week ago and I was very surprised when someone from the company sent me a request on linkedin about half an hour later. I sent a simple thank you for connecting message and he responded saying he and the developers were really impressed. Now, I plan to relocate so this job is like 200 miles away. Now they’re aware of this (it’s in my CV and on my profile) and he asked, for confirmation I guess. I said I’ll definitely be moving up there just as soon as I find a job. I also mentioned that I can move very quickly, should I receive a job offer. That was it. I haven’t received a response since and I don’t know what I should do. Should I send another message or should I just be patient. I don’t want to be pushy or anything, I just want an update, really. I’m thinking maybe they have a deadline and are waiting for more applications to come in? I say this because they tweeted a “we’re hiring” announcement today. But then they’re also hiring for a couple of other positions.
I’ve still been applying to other companies. I’m not just waiting to hear about this one. I do really really want it though. Anyway I just wondered if anyone has been in this position before and if so, what did you do?
