I recently applied for a vacancy directly through a company's website. From postings on agency websites, it was obvious from the description that this vacancy was also being touted by several agencies
I sent my application in and the end date for submissions was due. The day before the end date, it was pushed back by 2 weeks. Today I have found out through the website it has been pushed back another 6 weeks
My question is - should I get in touch with the company to find out WHY it is being pushed back? Would that seem too eager/pushy? I appreciate there are many factors that could contribute to this (lack of applicants, relevant manager off, changes within the company of departments/roles) but I am keen to know if this is a non-starter now rather than in many weeks
If yes, should I just drop a short and direct email to the company?
