How do you know if you got the job after interview?
You're Given Direct Contact Information
Getting direct contact information is always a good sign you'll get the job after the interview. Hiring managers meet potential applicants all the time and usually avoid handing out business cards like candy.
You can usually expect to hear back from the hiring company or HR department within one or two weeks after the interview, but the waiting time varies for different industries.
A second interview is a great sign, but it does not mean you got the job. Every company is a little different when it comes to their hiring practices. Some organizations require multiple interview rounds before extending an offer to anyone, while others only require a second in-person interview to seal the deal.
- The interview was cut short.
- You don't hear back after a job interview.
- The interviewer repeatedly cut your responses short.
- The interviewer did not share details about the job's duties or its salary.
If you've received no response after a job interview (and you didn't hear back even after you followed up on your job application), it's safe to assume that you didn't get the position and should keep interviewing with other companies.
If after about ten to fifteen days, you have not received any follow-up emails or phone calls to tell you about the “Next steps”, this usually means you did not get the job. If even after sending a thank-you email to the interviewer they never get back to you, this is a sign that you are not going to get the job.
- Specific compliments of your skills or experiences.
- Engaging you for longer than scheduled.
- Discussing benefits and rewards with you.
- Showing positive body language.
- Giving you specific dates on when you will hear back from the company.
- Discussing salary expectations.
Each employer's hiring process varies in terms of the amount of time spent to find a candidate. Some may choose to hire you within 24 to 48 hours of your interview if they're impressed with your performance and work experience or if there is a high demand to fill the position.

Why do recruiters go silent after interview?
A recruiter might ghost you if they don't think you're the best fit for the position or if they found a more qualified candidate who better matches their requirements. In more competitive industries with a higher number of candidates, the chances of recruiter ghosting might be higher.

If your interview was 30 minutes long, then it was just long enough. Hiring managers will generally schedule about 30 minutes to interview a candidate for most position levels. If you lasted the full 30 minutes, you know that you answered the questions well.
Personality, technical proficiency, education, and cultural fit are just a few of the traits hiring managers consider when deciding which job candidate to hire. During an interview, job candidates are also measured on their accomplishments and potential value to the company.
At the end of most job interviews, the interviewer will say, “Feel free to email me if you have any more questions.” It's easy to brush off this statement as a mere formality, but in reality, it provides an opportunity to make a lasting impression on your potential employer.
If a recruiter offers you a position in an interview, it often means they want to move quickly through the hiring process with you. Asking questions can help you determine if you want to accept the offer or not.

Usually, if a company is interested in you, they'll email or call you back after the interview. However, if you get asked back again right there on the spot, they want more people to interview you. This is a clear indication that they are interested in you and want more people to meet you.
