Hi there,

Usually it takes 2-4 weeks.

When I applied to OW, after 4 weeks of silence I called the office. The HR person looked at my CV during the call, found it interesting and invited me for interviews on the spot. So it pays to be proactive if you don’t hear back ;)

Hi there,

It can take weeks, sometimes months.

Do you have a relationship with anyone in the firm? (ideally you do). If so, you can reach out in 3-4 weeks to follow-up on the application.

Hello!

Within a month everything is normal and you should wait.

Longer, contact HR.

Hope it helps!

This of course depends on many different factors, especially now that COVID is disrupting many processes. If you have received a confirmation receipt, I would expect a response within 2-4 weeks.

Hi A,

It depends. I would expect to get a reply within 3-4 weeks.

If you still have no news after a month of waiting contact HR for an update.

Hi,

You can expect them to reply even in 1 month time. Though the median reply is usually 1 week.

I suggest that you should find recruiters on LinkedIn and ask them directly.

Good luck!
