I'm writing to let you know that we are in the final stages of discussions
regarding the Systems/Network Support Specialist positions. I hope to be
back in touch by the end of the week to inform you of our final decision.
I hope you are well.
Are they just enjoying putting me off?
Wasn't I supposed to hear about... oh... THREE WEEKS AGO????
music: prof babbling uselessly
from my perspective (i'm doing a good chunk of hiring of students and recent grads), that seems like a normal response and they're not trying to put you off.
just keeping you posted on the progress of the hiring and giving you a better idea of when you'll hear. until the actual decisions are made, most correspondences seem dry and give some (but not much) information.
keeping my fingers crossed for you...
