From the recruiter for the local job
Good morning Hope,
Sorry it’s taken so long to get back with you. I have been waiting for final word from <company name> as they made an offer to another candidate but it wasn’t accepted right away. I will get an answer today. They enjoyed meeting you and was impressed with your technical background so much they said they would consider you for a more technical role depending on how this turns out. Again, wish I had better news but we’ll find out for sure later today. Thanks.
So thus it is confirmed with no decision needed on my part the best option right now is to open shop again on my own business.
No other messages received despite last line.
