i can’t just keep CHASING AFTER him. idk why i get 1 interview per year and when i get that 1, it has to be 1 that will never email me to tell me no thanks, we hated you, no job for you.

i think you should pester him. what ive learned from being an editor, is that, there is a lot to do. a lot of emails. a lot of everything. and sometimes i forget about people that i don’t want to forget about and i always really appreciate when they remind me they exist. so i think a quick, “i hate to be a pest, but i so enjoyed our conversation and am really excited about the company blahbalh. would love an update on where you are in the process. thanks xooxxo.” would be GREAT and also APPROPRIATE and FINE.
