Should I call to see if I got the job?
Like so many other aspects of the job search process, of course you need to be professional. But it’s definitely OK to ask if you got the job after a successful interview and, in fact, shows initiative and a desire for the role. (Just be sure you’re not inappropriate, annoying or pushy.)
