I applied for a position with a local company and on the day I applied I spoke with the employer twice. He seemed extremely excited about bringing me on board as soon as possible but explained that he would be busy and probably wouldn't contact me until Friday (July 26th) or that weekend.
On Thursday I decided to send an email to the employer with some of my updated work (that I wasn't initially able to provide when we first spoke). Friday comes, no contact. The weekend comes, no contact. I'm finding it hard to believe that he wouldn't of at least replied to my email, let alone called me when he said he would if he was still interested in hiring.
The job posting is still up (which I'm guessing means the position hasn't been filled) and I still have yet to receive any contact. Should I cross this job off my list or should I try and reach out to the employer?
I feel like if I even need to reach out to the employer (after they explained thoroughly that they would be contacting ME) that this job will be a nightmare from the get-go.
