So I interviewed with this company over two weeks ago (before Xmas) and it seemed to go well. They called one of my personal references and from what I can gather seemed to be interested in hiring me. One of my professional references also got a message which he returned later that day. No call back. At my request he called back a second time. Still no response. At the time I interviewed they seemed very eager to fill the position so this has me worried.
On the other hand the hiring manager has been on vacation and just returned today. I don't know when he left, and I know things are always crazy when you get back after time away and have a zillion voice mails and e-mails to catch up on. I'm trying hard to stay positive and not to read too much into this but I just feel like anything I say at this point is going to come off bitter and annoyed because that's the way I feel right now.
All I want to do is:
1. Expresss that I'm still interested in the job.
2. Ask if a decision has been reached, and if so where I stand.
It doesn't seem that hard, but I've been having real trouble with it.
