The Process

What "we'll be in touch" actually means.

It brings all kinds of questions to mind. Are you going to call me or should I call you? And how long should I wait?

The hiring process is long and it's only getting longer. A Glassdoor study found that the average time of the interview process in the U.S. has increased from 12.6 days to 22.9 days. So hold your horses. It might be a while.

The interview is the perfect time for you to find out more about the company's process. They know they won't make the final decision until the end of the month, but you don't. Save yourself a lot of time waiting by the phone and ask what the next steps in the process are.

We've all had those interviews. You've done your research on the company. You have great answers lined up for the most frequently asked questions. You've even spent time looking at those really weird questions that interviewers love to throw at you to see how you deal with a curve ball. You're dressed for success. You're ready. Unfortunately, the interviewer really doesn't seem interested from the start.

According to Heather Huhman, writing for Glassdoor, even if you give stellar responses in an interview, an interviewer expects other things but never tells you. In this slideshow, we've highlighted Huhman's five insights that can help you during your next interview.
