When should I give up hope?

Had a phone interview for a role that I’m really excited about. Phone interview was the week before the 4th of July, but I was told the hiring manager was OOF and would be returning the week of the 4th. Recruiter said he’d pass my info along to the hiring manager and said I sounded like a great fit, but I haven’t heard anything since. When do I assume they’ve passed on me???

    I would wait longer. A lot of vacations this time of year

    Things move slow before and after vacations. Wait for couple more weeks.

    I'm in a similar situation. Just waiting and not knowing feels like forever

      The waiting is making me exceptionally cranky. I just want to know either way. Lol

      Did you get a rejection email? I finally heard back from the recruiter today and they want to go forward with an in person.

      Yeh I got a rejection email. The hiring manager said he wanted me to come in and meet the team but HR said they'd gone with someone else

    Was it a technical phone screen?

      There were no technical questions - it was all about my background/why I’m looking to make a change/why I’m a good fit for the company etc.

      Did the recruiter tell you what the next steps are?

      Next steps would be another phone screen with the hiring manager, but he didn’t give me a time table other than that the hiring manager was OOF until Monday the 1st of July. I followed up with a thank you email but never got a response.
