Don't keep too much hope, even you just went for an interview yesterday. The greater the hope, the more you will get disappointed if bad outcome. At least you will feel better. Go on applying other jobs that you think suitable or ideal.

Anything is a bonus. If you read earlier posts, there always some saying that they got job offer after 1 or 2 weeks. My advice to you is keep on applying until you are receiving job offer.
U waited 1 month for the results of the interview. But why didn't u call to check with the HR earlier?

some ppl say its a positive sign that they themselves call to ask u if u got any other offers n update u of situation.... but at the same time as long u dun have a concrete offer in hand, its as good as nothing
Bro, I feel u. Called the HR to ask about outcome of my interview and was told that there might be a restructure in the company so I need to wait for news from them.

says he says currently put on hold and might need another 2 weeks to find out from the dept and den he will let me know whether they want to proceed ahead with the hiring or not



why like tt... after conducting all the interviews, den now suddenly say like tt
Can I ask, when the company told u change in strategy, did u ask HR if the position is still open? I'm in same situation.
