It’s been more than 3 weeks and I’ve been wondering what kind of progress my application has made. I decided to give them 6 weeks before I called to ask.
Yesterday, I got an email from the woman who interviewed me saying she hadn’t received a reply to the emails she sent my references. My initial reaction was, “Uh, wait. Who did I list as references and why would they not have responded yet?” I talked to the people I thought were my references, also sending an email asking my interviewer who I had listed.
Turns out I was way off base with my guesses, but the people that I actually listed I have better contact with anyway. So, one hadn’t gotten around to it because she was busy getting married (she sent it in today) but the other I haven’t been able to get a hold of. Hopefully, I’ll be able to talk to her in the next couple of days and get things sorted.
TL;DR References have been slow in responding, but it currently stands at 1 down, 1 to go.
