I had alast weekend and was told I would hear back early this week. I didn't so I emailed my HR contact and she called me back explaining that they are still "assessing needs" and "waiting for some people to come back from vacation to make decisions." She told me that she would call me early next week to let me know (for sure). I kinda got the feeling that they have perhaps already given out offers and are waiting for someone to turn their offer down to get back to me? I want to believe that they still haven't made decisions but I fail to see how people coming back from vacation (who I didn't interview with) would be making the decision.
Along the same lines, would it be poor form to e-mail the MD I interviewed with and just re-iterate my interest in the position and how it is by far my first choice?
