I have found in these instances that it is generally that the faculty member may feel as though no one is listening to them and their needs. Once you listen to them, that diffuses the situation exponentially. Less

Here's been my journey with the process 1) I applied for the Finance rotational program and Network GLP on September 8th and 9th. 2) Did a video questionnaire on September 10th 3) Applied for top 3 position in Network GLP on September 13th. 4) Got a call 2nd week October for a group interview the next week. 5) Attended the group interview in mid October for the Network GLP position. After the group interview I haven't really gotten any updates. On the career portal my applications were last seen on October 10th. I also reached out to some of the people I had my group interview with and they haven't heard back either. Less
