  • Any updates? [11/26] 
  • It's been almost a month since additional materials were requested. I would think that they would have extended interview invites by now. Anyone out there with any insight? (posted 11/29) 
  • No insight here. Quiet on my end. [11/30]
  • Any updates post-ZOOM interviews?? [1/2/2019]
  • Nothing here [1/4] x2
  • I still haven't heard a peep following the ZOOM interview, so I guess it's safe to assume they've already been in contact with the candidates who are moving forward? [1/16]
