I applied for a job at a hospital over two months ago. It was a long application process; I heard from another applicant that over 90 people applied for 6 positions. This upcoming monday is the date I was told the final decision would be made.
I made all of the preliminary cuts and had a 20-minute phone interview last month. I received an email last monday (two days ago) that I was being considered for a position on a floor that is basically my dream unit. The email said that if I'm selected for an interview they will contact me directly, and if I have any questions I should call xxx-xxxx.
I still haven't heard anything. You can track your application status online and it's still showing my status as under consideration. My question is, would it help me to call them and ask if they need any more information? If it would blow my chances or reflect poorly on me then I definitely won't. But I really think that if I had a chance to interview then I would do really well.
What should I do? If you think I should just sit on my hands and wait, then please say so. But if you think I should give them a call, then what should I say?
