I interviewed for a job two fridays ago and afterwards they told me they would know in 1-2 weeks. So this Friday will be exactly two weeks and I have not heard from them yet. But I do know that they've contacted my references and one of them was only interviewed this Monday. A coworker told me that once they call references, I'm most likely going to get the job. However, I want to know for sure because I've got a few offers waiting for my answer (they're less than ideal, but if i can't get this, i don't want to have cut off my Plan B). So the question is....how do I go about asking them? I've heard some people say it's a faux pas to ask if you've got the job directly. What would you say on the phone when inquiring, then? TIA!
