That is a tough situation to be in! My recommendation is to hold off on contacting them. To continue to call in and ask, just makes it uncomfortable for both parties. If you have an email address, that would be more appropriate. I would recommend sending a polite email that reiterates your interest in the company and position and let them know that you are happy to provide any information that may be needed.
It doesn’t sound like you are in consideration for the positon. That is OK! You win some and you lose some! Never get to emotionally attached to positions that you apply to, because you may never hear back. In this situation, I would recommend asking your colleagues about how they applied, and went about the process. Take a look at their resumes and see where you both differ. This will provide you helpful insight on what you could potentially do better. Or, it could have been a timing thing, your colleagues may have applied at just the right time, and they decided to move forward with them. I wish you the best of luck in your search!
