hmm is that the case? previously, he told me had some influence over the panel's decision but i'm starting to think your conjecture might be right since he wasn't part of the panel like what he told me. and for that, i did not perform well during the final interview...
still going to drop him a email and see how it goes...

how do i ask in a way that doesn't sound too pushy? thanks for the reply.

Unregistered Hi, would appreciate if someone could explain what is actually going on. So I just had a final round interview with a government agency over 3 weeks ago. More than 2 weeks ago, I got notified that they did a reference check with my previous organisation.

Till now there is no reply. And they told me that I will know the outcome 2 weeks after the final round interview.

Hope to hear your views on this...thanks so much.

just write to express your excitement to join the team and thank him for the opportunity, and see what he says? don't worry about making it pushy or awkward, if he is not offering you the role then you won't see him again, right?

i mean, you make it sound like the interview is over - so if the panel doesn't think you fit the team or role, do you think the director can veto it?

You shouldn’t pin hopes on anything until the day you get the contract. You do know that you may fail health or security can fail the process too?

Do they usually take very long to decide? If they don't want to hire you will they definitely change the status to "unsuccessful", or will they just leave it as "submitted" forever?

Haven't went through a phase of unemployment before so I'm not sure how it's like... does feel like crap not having income though...
after 1 wk still 'submitted' means ur not shortlisted
