I interviewed for a job three weeks ago, and thought that it went pretty well. I was told that they'd have decision in three weeks. I contacted the main interviewer Friday, and he told me that they were still interviewing people and that he expected a decision by the end of this coming week.
I was surprised and disappointed that they are still interviewing people three weeks after speaking with me.
On the one hand, to me, that means they're having serious doubts about hiring me, or else they would have foregone the other interviews.
On the other, I am a local candidate for the position and perhaps other candidates had to be flown in and arrangements made. Perhaps this is why the interview process has been stretched out the way it has. Additionally, one has to consider the week of Thanksgiving as a sort of dead week for interviews.
I'm obviously overthinking all of this.
Does anyone have any thoughts, or similar experiences past or currently ongoing?
EDIT: Thanks for all of the responses so far. I just wanted to say that I plan on updating with whether I was offered the position or not once I receive word.
UPDATE: On 12/23, I received an automated email stating that I wasn't being considered for the position anymore. I guess the email didn't go a as well as I thought.
