    Sometimes can take a week, I think.

    She can always phone up and ask if they've made a decision!

    It can take a little while - a week or two.

    If she's following good interviewing protocol, she should have immediately sent them a thank you note for taking the time to interview her. Alternatively, she can try calling later this week to just thank them again for taking the time to meet with her and tell them again how excited she is about the prospect of working for them.

    I personally prefer the card because I am also a wimp and hate calling people and saying things like that.

    i went for an interview 2 weeks ago and the dude said he was making his mind up the next day. I never heard back, so i figured i hadnt got the job. Then he rang today and offered it to me...so, erm, yeah...it can take a while!

    It can usually take up to two weeks, if they give you a date to expect a response and you don't hear it is always worth calling to find out if a decision has been made.
