i don't think anyone is this thread is saying you should hold your breath and stop your job search after an interview. people are just saying how long it took to get an offer, nothing more, nothing less.

i do agree that it's best to just forget about it after you apply for or interview for a job. stressing out about it accomplishes nothing. but that's WAY easier said than done. i have gotten very good at being chill about my job search, but after my THIRD interview and reference check for my new job, i was pretty on edge! i still didn't stop applying for other stuff though!

I think it depends on the company, the time of year, how many people have to approve the hire, how many more people they have scheduled to interview. I will say this, companies that have been interested in me and have ultimately extended an offer have kept in constant communication with me, replying to my thank you emails, unsolicited calls telling me where the process was and where the hold up was (if any). Companies that were not interested in me took days to respond to emails, I had to follow up with them, etc. It's kinda like if a girl (or guy) is really in to you, you just know it. Doesn't mean that you won't ultimately date the girl who isn't all that in to you, you just may not be their first choice.

I think you have to look at how long the interview process took and the type of job you are applying for. If there were, for example, 3 interviews over a 3 week period, all interviewers will probably weigh in on the decision. That could take a while with workloads, vacations, number of other candidates being interviewed.

My experience has been, the larger the company, the longer the process.

Good Luck
