In my experience, it takes two to four weeks on average to receive a response after the last interview, but there is no standard schedule. According to several hiring managers, requesting 48 to 72 hours is perfectly reasonable. Most recruiters accept all connections, and connecting with them makes you more visible to them and also to the recruiters and employers they're connected to. Charlie Nelson, vice president of SmartRecruiters, works with hundreds of recruiters and has hired hundreds of people himself.
But how long does it really take for a hiring manager to evaluate an employee and make a decision?.
