We will decide in two weeks if you are selected for the second interview!

At the end of the job interview, they told me they will let me now in two weeks if I was selected for a second interview. Is that a polite way of rejecting an applicant.

Actually no. Each of the better jobs I was applying for always told me at the end of the first interview that they would let me know if I was selected for the second interview. Some said if I would be selected for the 2nd interview they would call me by such and such a day. If not I was not selected. But each of my better jobs were won on the second interview. Though one put me through what i thought was a third interview but it was actually to offer the job in person. Good luck ;)

The "We'll call you in two weeks" line worked only ONE time for me in my LIFE: When I applied for a job on the first day the upstate company was opening a local branch office with work that began two weeks later with paid training. For all others, I got the "You are overqualified" lie followed by the rejection letter in the mail two days later.

Applicants seeking employment because they NEED income to eat on and are qualified to do the job have other things to do with their time than twiddle their thumbs waiting for some employer to spend two weeks deciding whether they want to feed him or not--and when they saw and knew on that first interview whether you fit their company IMAGE or not. That's what I found that lie to be about.

In most cases, and in this day and age; yes. But, you always have to stay positive and realize that they might actually be telling you the truth. I think they have other applicants they want to interview before committing to you. Good luck.

they are saying; we will try to find someone better, but if we can't we will call you. You need to keep looking

this happened to me and i got the job. so its 50/ 50 it could be they are gonna conduct background checks etc before calling you back or they have lots of people to interview and need to make a discussion on hiring people with other people in managment.

sometimes it is a polite way of rejecting someone,but it can also mean they are doing many interviews and need time to select the right person.
