I am needing some advice on this situation.
I have applied for a job that will require relocation to a foreign country in Europe and the hiring manager I am dealing with seems to be very slow and generally unresponsive to email, so I am in a bit of a difficult situation with trying to make plans for my future.
The timeline of the events are listed below for reference:
7th of March - Applied for position
29th of May - Interview request
14th of June - 1st interview
27th of June - 2nd interview
13th of July - Job offer
14th of August - Salary negotiation concludes
It is now the middle of September and I have yet to actually receive a formal job offer.
Should I be feeling frustrated right now, or should I just relax and go with the slow-flow of this company? I am eager to leave my current position, but without a formal offer it is a calculated risk as to whether I give notice already.
I did have someone more senior add me on Linkedin welcoming me to the company, but I feel like I might be stepping on some toes by side-stepping my hiring manager and communicating directly with them to try and find out what is going on.
For some background they are a multi-national company in Germany in the medical industry.
