    Hey there, Usually, you would just be called by one of the interviewers to briefly go over your performance and next steps / or rejection. No way to find out until the call. Fingers crossed! Cheers, Florian

    Hi, Most likely they are also interviewing other candidates, and they will make a decision once all interviews are finished. I would suggest that you continue your follow-ups. Best, Deniz
