Would really appreciate your thoughts on this. I emailed the USA country manager in regards to a supervisor position, which was advertised as 'Supervising the LA Region'. However, after emailing the US country manager to inquire about this position, he mentioned that this position is actually based in Hong Kong (Where the company headquarters is) due to cost management. The supervisors will therefore oversee the city from headquarters in Hong Kong.
However, the country manager said he will get in touch with the departmental manager (based in Hong Kong - but looks after the department I want to work for) in regards to a position locally based, where I oversee all local cities (e.g LA, NY, SF etc) as a local hired employee.
The country manager got back to me on Friday, and mentioned that the 'departmental manager' will reach out to me for a chat. He mentioned in the email to keep him posted.
I unfortunately haven't received any contact yet from the departmental manager, and want to know how long should I wait before I get back in touch.
There are two ways I can think of in regards to getting in touch:
a) emailing the country manager back and asking a timeframe/emailing the country manager (but I'm not sure how to word the email)
b) emailing the departmental manager directly - I have seen the departmental managers name on LinkedIn, and know the company email format so I could send him an email directly. But I was thinking it would seem really rude emailing out of the blue?
Would really appreciate your advice, I'm really stuck on what to write in an email so pointers would be much appreciated.
NB: Not a duplicate to other questions already asked, as the application was delegated to another manager and no timeframe was given.
