I applied for a position with one company almost 26 days ago. The status says "in progress" but the position is no longer on their career website. What does this mean? I also applied to another company for two different positions about 30 days ago. The one application status says "under review" and the other application says "resume received". For the "under review" status, is that a good sign? How long does this process usually take?

Unfortunately, there is not a way to determine how long the hiring/application process can take at any given company. Typically speaking, if the role is no longer available on the website, it is likely they have a candidate identified. Resume Received is generally the first step and yes, under review is usually a good sign meaning they will be looking deeper at your resume/skill sets, but this does not guarantee someone will be reaching out to you. Keep applying!

I agree with what Sylvia shared. The only other potential insight I can offer is that sometimes we will take down a posting if we receive many applicants all at once. For example, if we post a position over a weekend and receive 150+ applicants, sometimes we will temporarily take down the posting to review all of the applicants to make timely updates to those applicants. For your second situation, "under review" is a good sign that your application is being considered. Each company has a different timeline to respond to candidates, but generally means they should be getting back to you soon if they would like to move forward with your application. Best of luck with your search!
